    Were the clear ones supposed to be British Anti-Gas goggles ??
    .. I thought I'd heard a story some time back that they were popular with the DAK ?

    Yes i believe they were Anti Gas Goggles,Gary.
    and no wonder they would be popular with the DAK,if their leader wore them.

    These are indeed British Anti gas goggles or more correctly, "Eyeshileds, Anti Gas, MKII" . They can be found with clear or tinted lens. They come in slightly different style depending on maker.

    I will have to photograph some more of mine. Here is a clear pair and a packet of tinted versions.

    Cheers, Ade.
