RAF Mk11 Flying Goggles
An exceptionally fine pair of rare RAF MK11 Goggles.
Completely free from damage, the goggles are in overall very good condition. Much of the original blacking to the fames remains and the brown tinted glass lenses are without chips or cracks. The finely woven sprung side panels are completely intact as is the synthetic fur trim.
Both sets of side springs are perfect as is the natural leather covering them. The leather strap is again without damage or wear. It would be very difficult to upgrade these Goggles.
Perhaps entering service in the mid thirties, these cool and light weight Mk11 Goggles proved popular and are seen in period photographs from the Battle of Britain through to the end of the war where they were ideal for wear in the high temperatures of the middle and Far East.
