Luftwaffe Model '295' Flying Goggles
Model 295 Windschutzbrille Flying Goggles. By O.W. Wagner & Co. of Rathenow. Designed initially for open cockpits but also used by airgunners in exposed positions these have oval metal frames mounted on a large single piece rubber face cushion. The frames are in excellent condition with only minor paint loss/chipping. The cushion retains a good overall shape but has stiffened a bit / lost flexibility in places and has cracks at the nose and to one side - see photos. The strap is a bit faded and stretched but does retain a little elasticity. Fitted with clear glass lenses in good used condition and come with a spare set housed in a cotton pouch. The goggles come with the original card carton which although very tatty retains the manufacturer's paper label dated December 1942. Stock code G19725.
