R.A.F. Balaclava Helmet (1940)


By Webb Woollies Ltd. Blue-grey machine made wool balaclava with single eye slot. Labelled with A.M. Kings Crown & 1940 date. These were often made by wives & girlfriends for RAF men using commercially available knitting patterns but this is a rare factory made & Air Ministry labelled example. The wool shows some “pilling” & has one small darned repair to the crown (hardly noticeable), otherwise in very good used condition. Stock code H13485.
