    Plus they won't fog up or smear....

    Perhaps they could have been used by AFV/tank crews to protect the eyes against 'spalling' when a projectile hits the vehicle without penetrating but causes small pieces of metal interior plate to break off and fly around the compartment??

    I know they used a similar idea in tanks during WW1.

    Regards, Ned.
    I believe your spot on Ned with anti-spalling. They don't protect against scabbing but molten metal (spall).Could possibly be used in the Engineering field also whilst working with molten materials. Maybe post war issue.
    Which country of origin I do not know.
    All the best

    Maybe they're skiing goggles?? Then again, if they were Russian issue you could make an argument for them being used by troops in the swamps and forests in summer, looking at some of the digging threads on here it looks like a nightmare with the bugs....They're as big as sparrows for gawd's sake!!!
