Notes:

Cintel's optics were designed and manufactured by a company in Ashgrove Road, Bromley, London called Wray Optical Works. Wray made the Optical Modules for the Buccaneer and Belfast Head-Up Displays which were absorbed into Elliotts in the 1960s.

Whilst this combiner glasses' outline and linkage attachment point are similar to that of the Buccaneer HUD's, it is shorter and has two ball bearing pivot points instead of a lower-edge pivot bar. It isn't like the Belfast HUD's fixed combiner glass either, so its intended application is presently unknown.
