An original pair of RAF pattern MK VIII Flying Goggles which were made by 'Levers'.

These goggles are arguably the most iconic of all RAF goggles and saw use with aircrews from 1942 well into the post-war years. They also saw action with USAAF crews, Fleet Air Arm and Coastal Command amongst others.

This particular pair are in used condition but are fairly sound and display well. The lenses are in reasonable condition and the brass frames retain a fair amount of the blue paint. The original grey elastic strap is still present and retains one of its original leather pull tabs to the metal adjuster which is marked with the maker's name of 'Levers' as well as the patent number. The leather portion of the strap is worn as illustrated in the last picture. 

Overall a very genuine pair of goggles which display well.
