Luftwaffe model 295 flying goggles
Model 295 Windschutzbrille flying goggles. By O.W. Wagner & Co. of Rathenow. Developed in the early 1930s, initially for open cockpits but used throughout the war and favoured by airgunners in exposed positions. These have oval metal frames mounted on a large single piece rubber face cushion. The frames are in very good condition with just minor paint loss/chipping on exposed edges. They are marked with the manufacturer's initials 'O.W.' The cushion retains a good overall shape but has stiffened a bit / lost flexibility in places and has cracks at the nose - see photos. The strap is a little faded and soiled but does retain good elasticity. Fitted with excellent tinted glass lenses. Stock code G19726.
