RAF C Type Flying Helmet 2nd Pattern
Classic example of the internally wired helmet which entered service in 1944. This helmet was displayed in an aviation museum for many years and is of museum quality. The leather shell is exceptional with no damage or flaking. The stores ref. no. 22C/880 is clearly embossed in the leather confirming this is a size 4, making it the largest size offered. This is a fully wired helmet with receivers, loom and a bell plug fitted. We have no idea if the avionics are working, so like all items on offer for sale as a collectable. Inside the lining shows signs of service use and for an issued helmet, this example would be hard to improve upon, particularly in this desirable large size.
