Stores reference 22c/65.  By Frank Bryan Ltd. Size 3 (71/8 - 73/8).  1940 dated.  The overall appearance is very good.  The leather is supple with good original finish on most sections but some loss of chroming / scuffing, mainly at the crown and left rear panel.  Fitted with zipped earpieces, both in good condition with original zips but replacement leather puller tabs.  The rubber receiver carriers are fitted within and each earpiece has a rather crusty Air Ministry sponge cushion.  All straps are good, the chinstrap retains the metal end piece and rear Bennett buckles retain some of the leather covering.  The chamois lining has less than average soiling and undamaged.  Complete with 1940 dated maker's label.  Unwired. Wiring, receivers, microphones and jackplugs can be supplied at extra cost if required.   Stock code H24536.
