    About this item

    An original pair of MK VIII RAF goggles in good condition and featuring the Air Ministry markings to the leather bridge. 

    The MK VIII goggles are arguably the most iconic of all RAF goggles, coming into service during 1943 and staying in use with the RAF until the 1960s.

    These goggles still retain their original Air Ministry stamp and 22c/ stores number which is stamped into the leather between the two eyepieces. The blue painted brass frames also feature the curved lip which is often associated with wartime manufactured goggles by many collectors. The frames are in good condition and retain most of their original blue paint. The chamois backing of the goggles is very good with limited signs of use. The lenses are also nice and clear with no real signs of delamination or age. The elastic section of the strap has been replaced with new material of the correct colour and new leather pull tabs have been fitted to the metal adjuster. 

    A nice original pair of WW2 RAF goggles in great condition and complete with AM markings and the curved frames.
