Hi Khyber - yes they're spot on - and are most likely WW2 vintage but could have been worn from the late 1920's onwards. Were you the successful bidder ?

Thanks Tim,
I had put in a bid, but a good friend who is known to most of us told me he was also bidding so I decided I did not want to jack up the price needlessly. Anyway my budget was limited. I'm glad to say he got it. Not bad at all for 64 gbp the pair! But I really did think there would be more bidders..
