RAF C-type flying helmet, early pattern

RAF C-type flying helmet, early pattern

Code: H22639

SOLD

Stores reference 22c/452.  Size 4.  The leather is only in fair condition.  It is reasonably supple but a little dry and has some scuffing, surface damage and a few holes, notably the two near the front left goggle strap.   Faint Air Ministry marks are visible. All four goggle straps are in place as is the Bennett buckle and chinstrap complete with metal end tip.  The original rubber receiver carriers have hardened and cracked but retain some flexibilty and would accept receivers.  Most of the lining is absent as are the inner donut earpieces.  Amazingly the rather nice Linen Air Ministry label remains in place.  Sold unwired.  Tatty used overall.  Display as is or use for spare parts.  Sold as seen.  Stock code H22639.
