Response to Re: Stampings

Conveniently, after mentioning these in a recent post, a pair of these fake goggles has appeared on ebay. A very good example of a totally fake item made to look totally convincing by fake stampings. Aside from the fact that the reference '22C/826' refers to the Mk VII goggle, the 1940 date is spurrious as the genuine 'Mk II' were in service way before that. Included here for anyone who was not aware of them.
