Flying Goggles

(click on pictures to enlarge)

RCAF Mk III Flying Goggles dated 1942.

Very good pair of RCAF Mk III Flying Goggles. Identical to the British made counterpart, except for the markings, the goggles featured clear celluloid acetate lenses, blackened brass frames with large leather pads and spring fabric and leather strap. This set is in very god used condition, with both stoppers present, excellent straps with all springs working and nicely marked leather back strap. Lenses are good with only minor scratches. Definitely a better than average pair.

1930s Art Deco goggles /sunglasses with grey smoke lenses for flight over water. Probably made by Theodore Hamblin of London. 

 

Came as part of a large collection of flying headgear and are especially nice because they feature the grey smoke lenses specially developed for flying over water. Leather side shields have some small tears but otherwise these look great and display well. No markings that I can find but the distinctive triangular lenses resemble a popular style available from Theodore Hamblin of London. Come with their original, fitted, blue velvet lined aluminium case.  A great find and an excellent display accessory.
