Fleet Air Arm C type Flying Helmet

This is the second pattern introduced into service in 1944. It is fully wired with excellent loom, fitted receivers, as well as Gosport Tube housings which were a unique feature of this helmet and explains the need for zipped receiver cups. All snaps and straps in place and working. The leather is generally sound, but has signs of repair to brow and front seams. This does not detract from the helmet and it displays very well. No apparent size marked, but it is small and probably a one or two.
