The "B" marking on right shoulder indicates that he optics are "bloomed", i.e. coated, and the marking War Dept arrow with "6E/383" is a Royal Air Force stores code for this type of instrument. They are also marked 'MK4' and serial number '8811' This is a fixed focus aircraft spotting binocular. It is reported that these instruments were used by observers in Beaufighters and other night fighters during WW II for reconnaissance including U-boat spotting.
