RAF Mk VIII Flying Goggles

A very clean example of this classic design introduced into service in 1943 and remained on the inventory until the 1970's. The leather face pad is in excellent condition with the inside showing evidence of normal service wear. The brass frame and central adjuster are well above average, with only minor paint rub. Clear lenses are fitted and are without the normal fogging problems. Original back strap with correct adjusters and still good elasticity. Decent Mk VIII's are now getting hard to find and prices are rising all the time. This set displays well with the FAA helmet which we have also just listed.
