Take a look at the Brooks archives:

The saddle undershield will be in most of the 1950s catalogues for sure.. possibly earlier but I am not sure when it was introduced.

I never understood the point of it having always ridden machines with mudguards until I rode my Raleigh Competition GS after a shower. Yuck! So very handy indeed but I think no longer offered.
