    Sorry to bump an old thread, but I have an identical pair of goggles that my parents bought at an auction years ago. When I was a kid, I wore them once as part of a Halloween costume of a WWII pilot. Does anyone possibly have some information on them? Are they even German?

    Well, they are German at least! Here's a pair I found with an ink stamp:

    I too have a set of these but was told years ago they are not German. It would be easy enough to add a stamp to make these appear to be German. Do I see a stamp on the strap as well? NH

    Shape of the box and goggle's look French to me. I have a pair the same here somewhere, and those are French. Or did the German use the French goggle's for their own troops after the surrender?

    Why does this pair have a WaffenAmt number associated with a Polish weapons manufacture? NH

    The stamp certainly could be a fake. I've found a few more of these online, described variously as Swiss, French and Gebirgsjäger.

    The stamps are bogus - pretty sure of that. NH

    Well interesting I know I have had a pair like them and you can find plenty of period pictures of GJ (Mountain troops German) wearing this type version. I know Bunker Militaria sells them as original German and Clay is downright good on his products he gets out of Germany and honest. I agree I have never seen a Waa on them or can strange? These goggles get a little bit like German ET or susposed to be German many variants and manf and foreign countries made them similar. I have also been told these goggles are Swiss, but the Swiss ones I have seen are similar but not quite the same. I wish someone would write a book on goggles and ID them and the Entrenching tools too. timothy
