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).
