    Default U-Boat Red Tinted Goggles.

    As worn by the U-Boat crew men, these are a nice pair of red tinted goggles.

    In great condition, complete with carrying pouch, these were worn when the main lights went out.

    Makers name: Auer, Neophan.

    These were needed for the U-Boat crewmen, to adjust their eyes to the darkness.



    Forgot I had these.. so small in it's pouch!

    I don't think these are rare to be honest.

    Interesting item, i understand they used to wear these for a while before they surfaced at night!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    It takes the human eye quite a while to adjust to the dark...maybe even as long as an hour...so red electric lighting was used within submarines, along with red tinted lenses, to assist in the adjustment for the crew members.

    The Germans also deployed some early inferred equipment , both on tanks and halftracks . Also an early type of night-scope was used or in the testing phase for the individual soldier . Could these have any connection those projects , just a thought . I have a pair of Allied googles with red lenses .
    Cheers Chris
