Response to WHAT A STEAL!!!

Well done on your find.

I find that general antiques shops are always worth looking in for raf kit. Whilst they may not get it in very often, when they do they rarely know what it is!

A few years back in a genreral antiques shop I found a c type/mkVIII goggles/g mask with hose all for what I thought was an unbelievable price, i.e less than the price a G mask would have been at the time. I said "I'll take them" so quickly I forgot to haggle. Just as the deal was being done the vendor said "oh yes these come with it too" and handed me a pair of 1938 dated MkIIIa goggles! I could not believe my luck, I have been back to the shop many times but they have never had any raf items in since.
