RAF Mk IIIa Flying Goggles
A pair of 1939 dated RAF Mk IIIa Flying Goggles.
Widely favoured by Fighter Pilots and Aircrew during the Battle of Britain.
These goggles are in a very good condition.
The leather strap is Air Ministry stamped with a Ref No. 22C/62, and is dated 1939.
The cellulose goggle lenses are clear, with some minor scratches in places, which you would expect to find on a used pair of Mk IIIa goggles.
All of the frame stitching is in place and the two front lugs are present.
The inside brown felt padding is in a good clean condition.
The strap has good working springs either side, and there is an old minor repair to the inside cloth, on one side (see photo).
