RAF sunglasses, type G, cased

Code: G22870


SOLD

Stores reference 22G/1398.  Size medium.  Post WW2 issue.  Introduced in the 1950s these are very similar to the standard WW2 issue MK.VIII anti-glare spectacles/sunglasses.  They have grey/green tinted lenses set in steel wire frames with side-arms terminating with sprung 'wrap-around' ear pieces. They differ from the MK.VIII in having a brow bar and sidearms sheathed with a plastic 'sleeve'.  Stamped 'HADLEY' and with war department broad arrow / reference numbers.  The frame is tarnished with some pitting and verdigris deposits but should clean up.   The left lens (as worn) has a tiny chip at the bottom adjacent to the frame.  One nose rest absent.  With original anodized metal case.  Fair used condition.  Stock code G22870.
