USAAF 'Used' Welco Fog Free Goggles

Code: SOLD-835

SOLD
By Welsh Industrial Eye & Protection Equipment (Welsh Mfg. Co. Prov. Rhode Island. These black rubber goggles feature a central lens division and a large bulbous moulding for the wearer's nose. This is fitted with rubber 'baffles' so that when the wearer breathed out air was directed away from the lens and out through the nose section. They also feature plastic vents at each side of the frame - possibly modified as they appear to have been covered with paper. Simple adjustable black webbing strap and a one-piece polarizing celluloid lens. All a little dusty but other than the potentially modifed side vents in good '+' original condition. Whilst these were intended primarily for ground use they were tested for aircrew use although not standardized. See p. 269 of 'Vintage Flying Helmets' for an indential pair of these scarce goggles.
