RAF Mk V111 Flying Goggles

Stores ref. no. 22C/939. This pattern was introduced in late 1943 and continued in service until the 1970's. This example is complete with the original issue box where the stores reference number has been altered to read 22C/4466583 as well as an indent number and RW 0156 383. The box contains the original demisting cloth and tin both dated 1942 and to complete the set it comes with a spare set of tinted lenses as issued. The goggles are in sound issued condition with just minor paint rub to the brass frames The leather face pads are good whilst the inner side shows service use. The clear lenses fitted are in excellent shape with none of the normal fogging. The original elastic back strap carries some rust staining but is still elastic. To summarise a nice original boxed set with all the extras. These would display well with the RAF C type we have just list
