    Smiths A404, first quarter 1953.

    No idea what RFP stands for -- Royal something something? Were watches issued to staff co-ordinating the Coronation?
    "Early this year I saw ex-army watches exhibited in a showcase at a little under 4 each. A week or two later I succeeded in buying one of them for 5. Recently their price seems to have risen to 8." (George Orwell, "As I Please", Tribune, 29th November 1946)
