Some Sand Goggle Types Used by DAK

I just thought I would bring out a few examples in my collection of various goggles seen in use in African theater as well as many other locations! Hope this brings up a good amount of other examples as the variety seems to be almost infinite! Hope you will enjoy! smile  Barron

First is a nicely dated pair of 1941 dated Luftwaffe type goggles.

Next is a commonly encountered army type in brown leather with  brown thin leather? case (snap damaged).

The next is the gray leather version of the same type goggle also with damaged snap on  gray case .

Last and definitely least expensive is a type shown often on manniquins in this forum but not really discussed much! They seem to be still very affordable  and available! Enjoy!
