Original 1940 Dated British Army MT Goggles + Case
An original pair of British Army MT goggles with yellow tinted lenses as used throughout the Second World War by tank crews, Dispatch Riders, Jeep Drivers and many more.
The goggles are the round shape as issued during WW2 rather than the round teardrop shape also seen in contemporary pictures. They feature yellow tinted lenses, grey leather work, oatmeal coloured fur around the edges of the grey dyed stockinet eye pieces and a grey elasticated strap.
The goggles come complete in their original metal tin which is maker marked 'MB 12' and the 1940 date. The box is in average condition for its age and displays well.
The goggles are in good condition. The strap still retains part of its elasticity and the lenses are very clear with next to no signs of delamination. There are a couple of rust spots to the grey fur as shown in the pictures but overall they display very well indeed.
A nice pair of early WW2 goggles which would be ideal for someone interested in the BEF or similar.
