R.A.F. MK.II Flying Goggles
Goggles, Flying Lightweight. Stores Ref. 22c/44. More commonly known as the MK.II. Technically an interwar pattern but still in use well into the early years of WW2. Blackened brass frames backed with knitted brown silk having a brown fur edge trim. Grey green tinted lenses. Distinctive leather strap having two sections with cloth covered springs inside. The frame is in very good condition although a little rubbed and with some light verdigris deposits. The knitted silk backing does have a few small holes but the fur trim is very good. As usual the lenses, which are 1942 dated, have some delamination marking and the left lens is cracked (see photo). The strap is pretty good with all springs complete. The leather strap section is good and AID marked. The adjuster buckles have surface corrosion. Rare to find these days. Not to be confused with the many variants of MT drivers\' goggles on the market. Stock code G15660.
