RFC / RAF used Lewis flying goggles


Code: G26358

By D Lewis Ltd. of Great Portland Street, London.  Almost identical to their model 209 aviation goggle and very similar in appearance to the official issue RAF MK.II goggles with pear-shaped white metal frames, woven silk backing with velvet and fur trim (the model 209 has rubber cushions in place of the fur).  Simple elastic strap, adjustable via friction clasps.  Fitted with laminated clear glass lenses.  Condition is very good '+' to excellent. There is light tarnishing on the frame & minor corrosion of metal strap components.  The lenses have very light delamination but display very well. The backing is in very good order but the strap has little elasticity remaining.  Typical of the goggles worn during the interwar period.  Stock code G26358.
