RAF Mk VIII Flying Goggles

A good original example with most of the blue paint remaining on the brass frame. Excellent leather face pad and clear lenses fitted. Backstrap retains elasticity. The Mk VIII was the final wartime pattern issued first in October 1943 and was such a good design, it remained on the inventory up until the introduction of the Mk I 'Bone Dome' helmet.
