By Kodak Ltd. London.  British made 'Haze Screen For Aerial Observation'.  Handheld optical device with a wooden frame housing three rows of different coloured filters for use when viewing through 'Mist', 'Glare' and 'Water'.  Integral moulded handhold.  The airman would hold the screen up to his face and select the appropriate filter for making observations.  It would seem likely that these were used mainly by Coastal Command crews.  Rare to find as they are quite fragile.  There is some delamination marking of the filters but overall condition is  good.  Complete with original card sleeve.  Private purchase item but similar to the Air Ministry Visual Haze Screen Mk.1.  Stock code M22769.
