RAF C-type flying helmet, late pattern
Stores reference 22c/879, size 3 (71/8- 73/8). The leather is in very good overall condition, supple and quite clean with minor scuffing and wear only. Embossed with war department broad arrow and stores reference details. All goggle straps are good and retain most of the original coating on the press studs. The lining has average soiling and one small hole ( see photographs). Both rubber receiver carriers are rather stiff (the right one is hard) and not flexible enough to add or remove receivers. The chinstrap is soiled, faded and somewhat ragged at the edges but retains a little elasticity. Sold unwired and minus receivers but is fitted with Gosport fittings. A reasonably good used example. Stock code H18856.
