R.A.F. C-type Flying Helmet, Late Pattern


Code: SOLD-848

Stores Ref. 22c/880, Size 4 (7 1/2 - 7 3/4). Faint reference markings only. The leather is completely supple and in excellent overall condition. All straps are good and retain the majority of the original coatings on the press studs. The lining is cleaner than average but does have a couple of small holes behind the oxygen mask press studs (see photo). The rubber receiver carriers are both excellent. Whilst the chinstrap is faded and a little ragged at the edges, retains some elasticity. Fully wired with a mid tan coloured loom, matched 10A/13466 receivers and black cased bell jackplug. The loom is very good although the oxygen mask plug isn@APOS@t stitched in place and the jackplug spring has surface rusting (see photo). A very good used example in the largest size produced. Stock code H16215.
