    Default Resistall Goggles Despatch Rider ?

    Morning gents I am considering adding these goggles to my collection to display with my Canadian Dispatch Riders helmet but all the literature I can find refer to them as aviator goggles.
    I am however near positive they are the same as the ones I have seen worn by dispatch Riders in period images .
    These are a little out of my area of expertise so I just wanted to run them by you gents first before I purchased them your thoughts on these would be appreciated.

    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 !!!!!

    Is it possible to look at the back of the goggles and the closed tin - obverse and reverse? From what I am able to find, Strauss and Buegelsisen were at 37 Warren St in 1918. Still attempting to find out when they moved to Broadway.

    Cheers

    It's a pretty good photo and the goggles look very similar to me!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Makes sense - they look awfully like some of 1930's ones I've seen.

    I have an exact pair (mint condition) in my collection as well, instead mine is in a cardboard box (no markings).

    Believe it or not, early Japanese naval aviators (probably 30's) used these similar goggles as well. To me it's possible.

    Since the goggles are not marked.
