The left lens has some small chips at the edges but they display well and vision is unaffected.  Air Ministry and War Department broad arrow and reference numbers are stamped into one sidearm. The other has the original owner's name 'Jackson' carefully scratched in.  They come in an alloy case for the later Type F sunglasses.  Stock code G18763.
