RAF B-type Flying Helmet
By Frank Bryan Ltd. Size 2 (67/8 - 7). 1940 dated. The overall appearance is excellent, the supple leather having good original chromed finish Fitted with excellent reproduction Air Ministry marked zipped earpieces and rubber receiver carriers. These have been manufactured and fitted by Steve Silburn and blend with the main body of the helmet seamlessly. The chinstrap still retains the metal end piece and the Bennett buckle has all of the original leather covering. The backstraps & rear Bennett buckle are also excellent. The chamois lining is lovely and clean and although there is a name inked inside, the helmet would appear to be unworn. Complete with label, Air Ministry and A.I.D. marks. Unwired but fitted with a pair of RCAF sponge cushions to pad our the earpieces (each has a small slot cut in it). Wiring, receivers, microphones and jackplugs can be supplied at extra cost if required. A lovely looking helmet. Stock code H18474.
