    Those look like good British UK goggles years ago I had a pair in the brown cardboard box marked with a Luftwaffe eagle and sold as such. Maybe some of the older members remember this. They were susposed to have originated in the UK they were identical to the ones you show. They would work well for a Canadian display. timothy

    It's a pretty good photo and the goggles look very similar to me!....
    Great shot! Does a body good to see a crisp pic of the bike.
    Goggles, SMG, the look of the determined dispatch rider not too shabby either.

    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    Another hard to find pair of goggles on the first photo.

    Most of the example I see are either no rubber pads or in really bad conditions.

    The U.S. also made identical ones, however some of them have a black C Boad-Arrow stamped on the rubber pad (frontal).

    I have one fine U.S. example with the rubber pad still on, and a CDN version without the rubber pad on.

    Cheers!

    Hi Taka you are correct the ones with the foam/rubber dust boots are very scarce actually I was holding off buying a pair of goggles till a pair like the ones pictured above came up but it has been a long wait so I opted for the other style for now .
    When I find a pair with the rubber dust boots I will add them as well.

    I myself like goggles as well.

    I have around 80+ CDN "Rommel Goggles" with brown paper packages.

    That is the most numbered single object I have in my collection.

    I don't get tired of them at all.

    Cheers!

    If you ever want to part with a couple of sets let me know possibly we could do a little bit of horse trading as it were.
