    Default Luftwaffe pilot's goggles model identification help is needed!

    Hi everyone!

    So, I've found a Luftwaffe pilot's goggles on the crash site of a Ju-88 reconnaissance airplane. One hour of Googling did not give me an answer about the model of the goggles—they have quite an unusual fixing mechanism on the sides. See photos.

    I hope someone will help me point out the exact firm it was produced by and a model, as well as some photos of this type of goggles.

    Also, there was this metal thing found nearby. It's not from the goggles, but I believe from other pilots' gear. Not from an oxygen mask fixing, either.

    Help is much appreciated!

    Rossi has these within his collection, note the elastic fixings to the side.

    Hi!

    They differ by the way these side fixings are done; mine have a small nut to be opened to change the glass. And the design of the metal mount (so to speak) where the belt is attached is also different. So, it's a challenge to find an exact one—maybe these are some rare privately bought goggles, so the pilot bought them elsewhere.
