RN / FAA C-type flying helmet


Code: H22878

Unsized but either a size 2 or 3.  The leather is in good '+' condition, quite clean and fully supple.  Undamaged bar minor abrasion and light verdigris on some metal parts (easily cleaned off).  This is an early internally wired pattern helmet of definite wartime manufacture.  Good straps and two of the three press studs retain most of their brown coatings.  The chinstrap is a bit grubby but retains reasonable elasticity and  colour.  Very good zipped earpieces with fully functioning zips, one with the leather puller tag in place.  The lining has average even soiling.  Named to 'D Harrocks'.  Fitted with a very good pair of foam rubber cushions.  Unwired but has the original rubber receiver carriers c/w fittings for Gosport tubes.  A good to very good used example.  Stock code H20878.
