Hello!

This is my first post in this subforum. I'm interested in peacekeeping operations in which took part yugoslavian army. On internet I found two pictures which shows members of yugoslavian army during peacekeeping mission in 60's. On helmets they wore goggles which I think are US goggles model 1944. Because I'm not expert of US militaria I would like to ask you for your oppinion.

Thanks in advance and best regards.

Hi Ian!

Thank you for your opinion. Is there any specific reason that you think that these goggles are B-8? Is it a light coloured line under the rubber frame of the goggles on the first picture, what seems that the goggles have a rubber frame with a foam backing?

B-8's and M-1944's are very similar in apearance, especially in a small black and white photo. I lean to B-8 because these look black and not grey (like M-1944).
