I've recently acquired a nice pair of Septarem 7x50 H binos, serial number 1699272 inscribed on the bottom central hinge cover. These binos were clearly used by the Royal Navy, as they have B&S style broad arrows cut into the top of both barrels and have "LIKE 1900A" inscribed on the right prism box cover. The top edge of the right hand prism box cover has a National Physics laboratory inspection inscription "NPL 38" and "OP 39". Does anybody have any idea of what the latter inscription represents? They need a good service and clean, so another one for Tony Kay, when I can get down there.

A lovely find - my own one is army marked. I've no idea what OP39 means but, if I find anything, I'll let you know. I suppose the 39 could refer to 1939 but it may be mere coincidence...
