RAF MK.VIII flying spectacles, cased
By British American Optical (BAO), stores reference 22c/961. Standard WW2 issue MK.VIII anti-glare spectacles/sunglasses with grey-green tinted lenses set within steel wire frames with side-arms featuring 'wrap-around' ear pieces. The frames are generally in very good condition bar soiling, verdigris deposits and some vertical play in the hinges. Close up photographs makes this appear worse than it really is! The lenses have minor scuffs but are generally good. Air Ministry and reference numbers stamped into sidearm. The original hard case is in sound condition but is a little squashed and has faded markings. Good used overall. Stock code G22218.
