RAF Mk.VIII flying goggles, boxed
Stores reference 22c/930. The frames are in very good condition with just minor rubbing and paint loss. The leather surround is equally good with distinct embossed Air Ministry Crown and reference marks on the central brow pad. The suede backing is quite clean and the strap is a little stretched /ragged on one side but much better on the other. It is lightly soiled but retains some elasticity and the metal strap components are largely free of corrosion. Fitted with a very good pair of tinted lenses. Complete with the original box of issue, this has some damage at the hinge but remains sound and is named to a Wing Commander Jack Gordon AFC. This also contains a reasonable pair of clear lenses (one cracked) and 1943 dated Antidim tin (lid seized). Very good overall condition. Stock code G23353.
