RCAF Mk.III flying goggles


Code: G18681

Stores reference 22/13.  One of the classic 'Battle of Britain' pattern goggles.  The frame is good, retaining much of the original paint finish with fairly light rubbing and paint loss on exposed points.  All of the frame screws are original and both frame 'stops' are in place.  The leather surrounds are also good and the internal padding remains supple apart from in the 'brow' pads that feel a bit 'crispy'.  Both lenses have light scuffs and surface marking but display very well.  All but one of the strap springs are excellent.  The leather strap section has surface wear and minor cracking but the buckle is free of corrosion.  The strap is embossed with  RCAF reference markings and 1940 date.  A very good pair of goggles.  Stock code G18681.
