R.A.F. E-Type Flying Helmet (Late Pattern)


Stores Ref. 22c/975. Size 3. (7 1/8 - 7 3/8). The aertex cloth is in excellent overall condition showing light use and soiling only. There is a small tear where the 2-pin oxygen mask microphone plug exits the helmet - the plug requires some restitching (see photo). Both rubber earpieces are in good flexible condition and the interior of the helmet/inner chamois donuts show only light use. The chinstrap has faded and lost some elasticity and some press studs have verdigris deposits. All the goggle straps are good and the press stud poppers have virtually all of the original brown coatings. Broad arrow stamped with reference number markings etc. Fully wired with a mid tan loom, receivers and jackplug with unusual \'blunt\' end. A very good example. Stock code H15331.
