This is a pair of vintage 6E/471 RAF AM Air Ministry binoculars in original leather case. The binoculars have 6x magnification, 30mm objective lens diameter, and with individual eyepiece focusing.

  • Stamped on top of the leather case “Wray London RAF 6E/471 A.M”.
Magnification is not marked on binoculars, but according to online information, these binoculars have x6 magnifications.
There are some written words on the base of the leather case, with a name, RAF, a number and place.
When looking into the objective lenses, there appears to be a chip on the internal glass (not on the large lenses themselves), but these are not visible when looking through the binoculars from the eyepieces. Some of the lenses have been cleaned where possible (i.e., eyepieces and some prisms under the eyepieces). The binoculars are in collimation with reasonably good images for their age and service.
