Hi,

 

does anyone know what the meaning of a Broadarrow stamp on a pair of Binos with an H under it?

Simply that...

 

Broadarroww above

H below.

 

Thanks

Chris

I would say the Inspector's mark.

The use of the broad arrow or pheon was introduced in 1544 and is still used as a  mark by MOD to denote government issue or property (the mark also used to be on prisoner's uniform) it denotes that the binos were War Office issue.

I'm guessing the same as Steve on this.

There are plenty for sale with 'H' but tracking down a proper explanation is difficult.
