The Hythe rear sight is a legitimate issue sight. Lots of SLR shooters used it in service rifle shooting.

I think the advantages it provides are that 1.) the regular aperture is smaller than the standard rear sight, and 2.) when the regular aperture is used, the low-light aperture leaf (also up, behind the regular aperture leaf) acts like a sun shade, sort of like an American National Match sight.
