Army Air Corps strap for B-6 or B-7 flying goggles

 

Essentially a universal strap for most US issue flying goggles of the 1930s and WWII era, but being the waffle pattern elastic, this type is more readily found on early goggles such as the B-6 and B-7 (which were later redesignated AN6530). In very good condition, retaining some elasticity. The white elastic is slightly yellowed with age and there is one small frayed area at the edge, but these would be a great original replacement for a worn or stretched out strap.

1944 dated Polaroid variable density goggles for observing tracer, atomic detonations etc. issued overseas, possibly Croatia?

 

Standard type variable density goggles by Polaroid, with central knob for adjusting darkness of tint and red flip shield for observing tracer ammunition and other incendiary devices. Very good condition, the rubber pliable and the strap retaining most elasticity. The knob, though a bit stiff, works fine and the lenses do darken nicely. The red screen is undamaged. Though marked US and dated 1944 to the front, these goggles are also marked with a crown and the initials HV. Never seen this before. HV is the national abbreviation for Croatia (Hrvatska) and the crown appears to be that of the Coatian aristocracy from 1939-43. Perhaps these were captured or procured by Croatian forces? Interesting. If anyone has more information, please don't hesitate to share!

RAF Mk IA Dark Adaption Goggles.

 

Excellent example of the RAF Mk IA dark adaption goggles. These were carried and worn by all pilots and crew members on night flying operations for 30 minutes prior to take off, in order to adjust the eyes for night vision. Red lenses in a leather mask with metal side vents to prevent fogging. Back elastic strap retaining its full elasticity. These replaced the Mk I Dark Adaption goggles which were identical except they used neutral dark lenses and had no metal vents. A useful accessory for depicting any night operation.

Replacement visor for the rare RAF Mk 2A bone-dome flying helmet.

 

Size LARGE replacement or spare visor for the Mk 2A bone-dome. This is has never been used (the holes are not drilled all the way through). Some very minor surface scratching but overall excellent example, rose smoke tinted with the clear half moons at the bottom. A very rare accessory for an extremely rare jet flying helmet.

RAF Private Purchase Triplex Flying Goggles.

 

Commercial flying goggles from the late 1930s/40s of the type often seen in photos worn by Battle of Britain pilots. Most likely from Lewis Leathers. Chromed frames with Triplex marked lenses, white rubber cushions and strap similar to Mk II or Mk III goggles with fabric covered springs. labeled "Aviator Goggle" on bridge. These are grubby from use; rubber is soiled and misshapen but surprisingly still fairly pliable. Strap springs are still strong. Triplex marked lenses are very good.

Rare Early WWII Soviet Flying Goggles with box and cleaning cloth.

Extremely rare early wartime Soviet Air Force flying goggles, in unissued condition, and complete with their original cardboard carton and felt cleaning cloth. The style is primitive, copied from First World War types used by both the British and French Air Forces, made from heavy black oilcloth edged in red cotton fabric with a simple cotton tie-strap at the back. Angled, hinged glass lenses for good peripheral visibility. Flying kit from the USSR is still extremely rare but to find a set of goggles in unused condition and still having the original packaging is very unusual. Most often seen in photographs with the fur-lined cowl type helmets favoured by Soviet aircrews in the early days of the war.

Two sets available. These are the clear, curved (cylindrical) large glass lenses for the Luftwaffe Model 295 flying goggles made by various companies including Auer. Winter, Wagner and others.  Two lenses, left and right, in their felt pouches (one grey, one brown) as issued in the tins or boxes in which the goggles were supplied.

RAF Mk VIII aircrew anti-glare spectacles with case.

Excellent pair of Mk VIII aircrew spectacles, anti-glare, in their fitted velvet lined metal case. Spectacles are in great condition, with good frames, tight hinges and lenses having one very small chip on the rear (at the edge of the frame so it cannot be seen and doesn't interfere with vision). Maker marked WOC (Wheway Optical Company) on brow bar, plus nice clear Air Ministry mark and stores ref. number on both frame arms. Case is solid with great markings and full stores ref. information visible, but cloth covering has wear around the edges. The cases are quite scarce - many of these spectacles were reissued in Mk VIIIA cases which had different markings.

Imperial Japanese Navy flying goggles.

Excellent example of the standard issue goggles for Japanese Navy pilots and crews, featuring the so-called "cat's-eye" shaped lenses. Brown lacquered aluminium frames, brown velvet pads and reddish brown elastic strap - the colour scheme most commonly associated with Naval aviation - though also used by the Army Air Force. No maker markings on frame. Clear acetate lenses suggesting late war. Minor dings to frame but overall very good, clean condition and strap retains elasticity.

AAF M-1943 Emergency protective goggles x 3.

 

3 pairs of AAF M-1943 folding goggles, all with some minor damage but could possibly be used for spares, restored or would display just fine as part of the Emergency Sustenance vest contents for which they were intended. They offered protection from the sun in the event of ditching at sea or force-landing in tropical or desert regions. Two have small cracks/splits in the green acetate lens, the third has issues with the leather as well, but all retain their straps. Price is for all 3 and based on condition.
