RN / FAA C-type Flying Helmet - US Receivers


Code: SOLD-843

Large size (almost certainly a 4). The leather is in very good overall condition, clean and fully supple. There is some minor abrasion at each side close to where the chinstrap is attached but this does not detract from the overall appearance (see photo). Good straps and all press studs retain most of their brown coatings. The chinstrap is a bit faded and soiled but retains some elasticity. Very good zipped earpieces with fully functioning zips, one having the leather puller tag in place. The lining has average soiling and some green verdigris marking but remains undamaged. Fitted with an excellent pair of RAF (not RCAF) foam rubber inserts. Fully wired with an excellent type 2186 (series parallel) light tan loom with three terminals to each receiver, black cased jackplug and USAAF ANB-H-1 receivers held within the original rubber carriers c/w fittings for Gosport tubes. This is the correct wiring assembly for use with AAF receivers. A very good used helmet in a generous size. Stock code H18212.
