    I am not familiar with the #'s 77 51 maybe for the army,here are photo's from Mick Prodgers book vintage flying helmets and from Jim Weld's book flying headgear of the world 1933-1945 they are very similar to your goggles. HOPE THIS HELPS......DAVE H

    hiya Dave

    thanks for that they have now been determined as being for commercial use & not military i did open them up & there's no other markings & the quality of the rubber is poor compared to that of the military versions.
