Pair of gogles comprising clear circular lenses mounted in maroon leather frames attached to maroon leather backing. An elasticated strap is mounted for securing the goggles to the head.
These goggles are associated with the service of Harry Brocklehurst, who enlisted in the Royal Flying Corps, 16.2.1916, as a Mechanical Transport Driver (Air Mechanic 2nd Class).
Brocklehurst served in France with No.2 Aircraft Depot, based at Candas (Somme). Both Candas, and No. 1 AD (based at St Omer) were pivotal in holding stores and supplies for the flying squadrons as well as providing skilled men for salvaging and repairing aircraft. Both establishments worked around the clock particularly during the Battle of the Somme and Third Ypres in order to make good losses and to assemble new aircraft arriving fresh from Britain.
22893 AM 3 H Brocklehurst was discharged 19.11.1919.
