    Finnish pre war goggle question

    Hi I was wondering if anybody could help me with what type of goggles would be appropriate to display with this pre war Finnish leather face mask.
    This particular mask was used in the winter war by a British volunteer pilot.
    Any ideas and photos of goggles would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Brian,

    it´s hard to find photo with a facemask in use by the finns. Here are what i found that is Winter war related. The first 2 ones are swedish volunteers from F19 that was stationed in the finnish Lappland during the Winter war

        Thanks Hans, great photo's. Yes it is very hard to find photo's of Finish pilot goggles in use and especially close up's.
        I recognize the German one's but any idea which model the Swedes are using? also pilot on the left in the second photo they kind of look like the ones I have in the attached photo.
        The leather flight cap shown in my photo has no maker label but it is SA stamped.
        Thanks again

              That would be great if you can find the model number, then the hunt is on.
              Thanks

                Been hunting info for you Brian and it took some time. But apparently the swedish googles on the last 2 photos are called "Flygglasögon typ V"
