Triplex Type A-3 Goggles

Oval white metal frames with sprung silky fabric & fur edging. Plain brown elastic strap with adjuster slide. Clear laminated glass lenses. Marked \"Made in England\" to frames. Some delamination of lenses & the strap is crudely stitched & may be a replacement. Generally fairly good used. Complete with \"Triplex\" fibre case of issue having a triplex logo & noting \"A-3 model\". The case is in good condition but does have wear to the folding parts of the \"lid\". Goggles & case virtually identical to the C-2 model shown on p135 \"Vintage Flying Helmets\" by MIck Prodger & favoured by early RFC pilots. Stock code G8857.
