USCOB,

I also am interested in what you find in your pile of boxes

Frank,

Thanks for more pictures. I think I've seen the bags for the goggles on eBay. Interesting to see that yours was made by RAKA. That is a Belgian company best known for producing camouflage uniforms for the Belgian Army. The use of foreign companies for early BW purchases, or making things for foreign countries, was fairly common because of war reparations. But 1965 the war reparations were complete (if I remember correctly) so it is odd to see a Belgian company's stamp on a ZB item.
