The one on the right is a Kodak Vest Pocket for 127 film, very common. The other one takes cut film sheets (6.5 x 4 cm) but is adapted, to crop that to 18 x 25 mm it has a Zeiss Tessar lens and a F. Deckel shutter, but beyond that, no identification at all!

Left hand one possibly by Krauss, Germany ? They made several in this size,they were good quality. One was the Krause Knirps. Most of them had Zeiss lenses.
Kind regards,

Dave, thank you very much for that. I am sure that you are right, I have had a good look on the internet & in McKeowns and it seems like a G.A. Krauss camera, The rear has been modified and possibly a different shutter & lens has been fitted.. More investigation follows.
