    My guess is he's wearing the dust goggles from the (M43?) gas mask kit, or some he had liberated from one of the defenders, which were of a similar design. Plastic lens with cloth trim.

    He's definitely wearing some form of eyewear. Goggles or glasses - who can tell? If it's glasses, they look a bit 1980s so goggles of some sort would get my vote.

    Hi Rick and Ade

    I'd say he was wearing dust goggles, and took them off for the pic, and that is where its all nice and clean, and the rest that was exposed to dirt/dust gives the outlines of where the goggles used to be.

    We got that a lot in Iraq, especially with the MA Duece gunner, always on top, and exposed to everything as we was driving down the MSR's over there.
