Provenance

We've a couple of these early abseil devices/ figure of 8's in the collection. HM Dockyard workshops made some for the Royal Marines in the 1970's and think this is where these came from though we are not 100% sure. The absence of a maker's name implies the above to be correct, or they were 'home made'.
