RAF MK.II Flying Goggles

Code: SOLD-1537

SOLD
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 and popular with many Battle of Britain pilots. This pair has the blackened white metal frames. These are backed with the usual knitted brown silk having a brown 'fur' edge trim. Clear lenses with 1942 date mark on each. A suprisingly common date on MK.II lenses! Distinctive leather strap having two sections with leather covered springs inside. The frame is in excellent condition as are the lenses. The knitted silk backing/trim is equally good The strap is very good although there is some soiling of the chamois and minor damage to part of the leather covering on one side partially revealing the springs (see photo). There is also surface corrosion on the strap adjusters. A.I.D. marks on the strap. Overall, this is an excellent used pair of these rare goggles. Not to be confused with the many variants of MT drivers' goggles on the market. Stock code G19256.
