RAF Mk IIIa flying goggles

Code: 10309


A Super pair of RAF Mk IIIa Flying Goggles.

Widely favoured by Fighter Pilots and Aircrew during the Battle of Britain. These goggles are in a near to 'mint' condition. The leather strap is Air Ministry stamped with a Ref No. 22C/62, and is dated 1939. The cellulose goggle lenses are excellent and clear with only some minor storage scratches (one has a small white mark on the bottom edge). All of the frame stitching is in place and the black paint finish, also the two front lugs are present, which are often missing on this type of goggle. The inside brown felt padding is excellent and clean, although the internal padding has now gone a bit stiff. The leather strap has great working fabric covered springs either side.

Condition wise, a very 'hard to beat' pair of early Mk IIIa goggles.
