    Ah yes, thank you much. I wasn't sure where/when they were from but now that you say that I've found them. I wonder who makes these things, the mark on it looks Isreali or something.. hmm.

    US M44 Goggles: these have been made since WW2 to the present day. If the design works, why change it! No idea on the marking either....

    Cheers, Ade.

    it wouldnt surprise me that they may be Israeli made,,,they have copied lots of military surplus from the US and other countries to fit their needs....

    This would be my guess too, as I have never seen a mark like this before.
    The 'logo' is very large, which also makes them appear to be for
    commercial consumption.

    WWII versions have '1944' in small size numbers.
