R.C.A.F. / R.A.F. MK.III Flying Goggles
Stores Ref. 22/897. One of the classic 'Battle of Britain' pattern goggles. The frame is in sound condition but the paint finish is quite rubbed with brass showing through. All of the frame screws are original and both of the frame 'stops' are in place. The leather surrounds are in reasonable condition but do have scuffs and some small damaged areas as does the base of the nosepiece. The internal padding is relatively soft compared to many pairs we've handled. The lenses have light to average marking and scratching. The strap springs are complete/very good although grubby. The leather strap is good and fully R.C.A.F. stamped with a clear 1942 date. Exactly the same as the Air Ministry marked ones but cheaper! Quite good used goggles. Stock code G14657.
