Luftwaffe K-33 Grey Leather Flying Helmet
this example being of similar deign to the summer version K-34 helmet we have also listed today but is the winter version, having a short pile lambs wool lining. This helmet has no label but seems to be a medium size. It has provision for a 3 point oxygen mask looks to be mid war production. Grey leather helmets do not appear on the market very often, and are reported to have often been used in conjunction with the grey leather flight suits favoured by Me 262 pilots. A near identical specification helmet to ours is illustrated in Mick Prodger’s ‘Luftwaffe v RAF Fight Clothing’ book on page 23. Another often missed pattern that could complete a gap in the more specialist Luftwaffe collection.
