RAF First Pattern C type Flying Helmet

Stamped with RAF stores ref. 22C/452 making this a size 4 helmet. This increasingly hard to find pattern was introduced in late 1941 and continued in service until 1944 when the second pattern was introduced. This example is in good issued condition but without receivers or the external wiring loom being fitted. Showing some service wear but well above average. Named to Hepburn. A nice original example of a genuine WWII issue helmet.
