RAF C type Flying Helmet

This is a second pattern internally wired helmet, introduced into service in 1944. It is fully wired with excellent receivers housings, loom and jack plug fitted. All snaps and buckles are in place. The leather outer shell is generally sound but exhibits some flaking to the surface and the oxygen snaps are a little tender. The helmet is stamped with the broad arrow property mark and stores ref. no. 22C/880, making it the largest size 4. Inside the leather lining is in excellent issued condition and the helmet has had several owners, the last appearing to be James. This helmet, despite its faults, stll makes a good and complete example for display purposes only and has been priced accordingly.
