USAAF A-11 intermediate flying helmet
By the Fox Chase Knitting Mills Inc. (I. Miller Parachute Division). Size large. The leather is in excellent condition - clean and very supple. USAAF decal to left side. Part of the rear horizontal strap is missing but all other rear straps are very good. Excellent Bennett type buckle and very good chinstrap (metal end tip absent). The lining is also in very good condition and quite clean. It has an embroidered manufacturer's label and an AAF ink stamp. This is the later war variant with a buckled rear adjustment strap and leather reinforced oxygen mask press studs. Unwired. We have the correct 'Y' looms and receivers available if required. Oddly the Bennett buckle lacks the small metal 'loop' through which the chinstrap is passed. A very good '+' example. Stock code H21815.
