RAF MK.VII Flying Goggles
Stores Ref. 22c/827. The frame is generally good although it has minor distortion (see photos) and relatively minor paint rubbing/chipping on exposed edges. The flipshield (anti-glare screen) bar has been removed, this is a relatively common period modification. The leather surround is good and the backing chamois has average soiling and small tear in the left pad (as worn, see photo). Unusually the padding remains soft and pliable. Good nosepiece leather. Fitted with clear lenses with some delamination marking. The webbing strap has faded and has lost elasticity. Air Ministry markings to the bridgepiece as usual. A reasonably good pair of used goggles. No flipshield fitted. Stock code G18238.
