This is one of several simple box cameras for 127 rollfilm that were produced by Kodak Ltd to support premium schemes. As far as I know, this camera was not shown in the catalogues of the time. Other examples of premium box cameras produced by Kodak Ltd are the Baby Hawkeye and Hawkeye Ace De Luxe.
While this example does not reveal the identity of the scheme under which it may have been distributed, other examples have been seen for a number of newspapers and magazines, notably John Bull and the Modern Wonder.
The camera is not listed in Coe  as the Hawkeye range are excluded from the scope of the book.
