    Was thinking the strap looks like a British helmet strap.

    Could be cobbled together by an enterprising soldier after the original elasticised strap broke?

    Possibly. .. many nations goggles look similar. ... the german ones often used a d ring or similar to attach the strap. Do the press studs have a maker stamp?

    More inclined to think these are British.

    Thanks for the info on these, may look good on one of my pith helmets then, I will have to look out for a AFV helmet or despatch riders helmet.

    This photo from a previous thread on goggles looks like a good match, the nose bridge strap looks about the same size. I believe these type of goggles are interwar manufactured flieger goggles, but repurposed for motorrad use.
