Noticed this on ebay. Anyone have any idea what the forehead popper might have been used for? Seems to have modern avionics lead in it.

Yes, that is a modern-ish comms lead. British military comms at that, as far as I can tell.
What the popper on the front is for is anybody's guess. Mine would be it has something to do with the goggles. Securing the goggles maybe, when worn, or when not worn?
