I need photos (preferably color) of the front, back, top, and bottom of the binoculars and cases, if at all possible, but I would be happy with whatever photos you can provide.
I am looking for the kind that would have been used by British officers and snipers.
I searched the internet and this forum, and could only find a little information.
I am speculating that this pair would be a 1914 Ross pair because they are the
galilean make (i.e., essentially it is like two telescopes stuck together by a metal ban):

According to a post at this forum, there were five prismatic and four galilean types of binoculars used by the army in 1914 (or at least by the Artillery):
Manufacturers are not named, just specfications (unless 'Ross Pattern' and 'Zeiss Pattern' refer to manufacturers - I have to pleased ignorance there).
However, the galilean binoculars were inferior compared to the prismatic binoculars; so I would prefer photos of a 1914 British Army prismatic pair.
The prismatic ones are wider in appearance, similar to today's binoculars.
This is a Ross prismatic pair from 1915:
I can't place the year on this pair; they are also Ross manufactured, but look a bit different from the pair above; I admit I do not know a lot about binoculars:
I know some of the pairs used by British officers were privately purchased; I am looking for pairs that would not be too out of the ordinary.
