RAF MK.IVB Flying Goggles, Complete/Boxed
Stores Ref. 22c/167 (Goggles), 22c/113 (Screen, Anti-Glare). The frame is in excellent original condition with no damage and virtually no paint loss whatsoever.

Remarkably, even the original rubber face pads retain very good shape and flexibility. The fitted clear lenses have fairly minor edge delamination but appear good. The strap components are excellent throughout - all the strap springs are complete/excellent. Clearly A.M. marked with reference numbers etc. The flipshield, or more correctly 'Screen, Anti-Glare' is fitted with the small enclosed type spring mechanism - all in very good condition bar a missing securing bolt abd slight distortion of the bracket (see photos) . Complete with fully stamped original box of issue. Whilst this is soiled and has some damp or water damage it remains in reasonably good overall shape. Also comes with the inner card spares box containing a tube of “Everclear” (compound stick broken inside), spanner and a full set of helmet plates and poppers for attaching to B or C-type helmets (all very good to excellent) plus copper rivets and the leather/chamois forehead strip too.
