Default Opinions wanted on military binoculars

I would be grateful for opinions on what I think might be WWII Tank Commander’s binoculars. There are some markings on them which I am not familiar with. The ranging graticules are still visible when using them. I attach some pics.
Thanks,
Peter

They are just standard army issue binos.

Thanks Siegfried,
I now see that standard issue Army binoculars had ranging graticules, not just those issued to Tank Commanders.
Thanks,
Peter

I was told that they were manufactured by Taylor Hobson in 1943, but because they are not dated or maker marked I do not know how they arrived at that conclusion. Possibly from the serial number?
Thanks,
Peter
