RAF E-type flying helmet, intermediate pattern

RAF E-type flying helmet, intermediate pattern

Code: H22512

RESERVED

Stores reference 22c/747.  Size 4 (71/8 - 75/8).  Lightweight unlined 'airtex' cotton.  Intended for Coastal & Transport Commands but saw wider use in tropical/desert regions.  This example is an 'intermediate' pattern having internally attached receiver carriers and an elasticated webbing chinstrap but no provision for internal wiring.  It shows light use and wear but is undamaged and quite clean.  The receiver carriers are a little mishaped but remain good/flexible and the chinstrap retains good colour and some elasticity.  All straps are good and the press studs have most of the original coatings remaining.  A very good example of a relatively uncommon variant.  Stock code H22512.
