RAF, Air Ministry marked Mk III Flying Goggles

RAF Mk III Flying Goggles.

The excellent leather strap is Air Ministry & Kings Crown stamped with a Ref No. 22C/69, and is dated 1935.

The cellulose goggle lenses are in a good and clear condition, with some small scratches.

The frames are good, with some minor distortion to one side (see photos) and they retain the majority of their paintwork.
The stitching is in place and the front hinge lugs are present.

The inside brown felt padding is good and clean, and the leather face mask is in a good condition with some minor scuffing.
The internal padding is stiff in places.

The leather strap has good working fabric covered springs at either side.

A very good pair of Air Ministry marked Mk III goggles.
