US Army Dust Googles 1944 Type I









 
NORMANDY INVASION M-1944 ISSUE
101ST AIRBORNE PARATROOPER SIGNED DUST GOGGLES


THE US GOVERNMENT BEGAN ISSUING DUST GOGGLES IN 1943 FOR PARATROOPERS. THEY WERE NOT DESIGNED TO BE WORN WHILE JUMPING, RATHER FOR TRANSPORTATION AS PROTECTION AGAINST DUST. I LUCKED OUT WITH TWO PAIRS, ONE ISSUED IN 1943, AND THIS SET THAT IS RARE. IT WAS ISSUED FOR THE NORMANDY SUMMER INVASION IN 1944. THESE ARE THE TINTED VERSION FOR SUMMER WEAR.
