R.A.A.F. MK.IIIA Flying Goggles

Code: SOLD-1246

SOLD

Australian Stores Ref. L1/40. One of the classic 'Battle of Britain' pattern goggles. The frame is reasonably good but does have some dents, minor distortion and paint loss in places. All of the frame screws appear to be original and both vent horns and frame hinge 'stops' are in place. The velvet backing is excellent and in a very dark brown/black as usual with Australian variants. The nosepiece leather is equally good. The clear lenses have very minor marking and surface scratching - these are possibly replacements. The strap springs are all complete and undamaged. The cloth spring coverings are very good although a little worn in a couple of places revealing the springs beneath. The leather strap section is very good with full RAAF markings and 1940 date code. Other than the Australian code and dark brown velvet backing these are identical to standard RAF issue IIIAs. These were re-purchased from a customer who bought these from us some years ago. Good to very good used goggles. Stock code G18252.
