RAF C-type helmet, late pattern

RAF C-type helmet, late pattern

Code: H25345

SOLD

Stores reference 22c/880, size 4 (73/8 - 71/2).  The leather is supple but rather worn in places with creasing, surface abrasion, lifting and loss of chroming.  All the goggle straps are quite good and the press studs retain varying amounts of their original coatings.  Both rubber receiver carriers are complete but rather stiff.  It should just about be possible to remove the receivers if desired.  The lining is complete/undamaged but quite soiled with rubbed areas on the donuts and at the back of the neck.  It is named to the original owner 'Shuttleworth'.   The chinstrap is soiled, a little stretched and lacks elasticity.  Although wired with type 32 receivers, the mid tan coloured loom has been severed approximately 6" from the back of the helmet.   This could be restored with a replacement loom or stripped for parts.  Stock code H25345.
