RAF C-type flying helmet, 1st pattern internally wired


Code: H23480

Stores reference 22c/878, size 2 (67/8 - 7).  The leather is in excellent overall condition, very supple and clean. The goggle straps are very good, one press stud retains most of the original coating, the other approximately 40%.  The lining has average soiling and is undamaged.  Both rubber receiver carriers look excellent but are not fully supple and the receivers should be left in place to avoid damage.  The chinstrap is lightly soiled and faded but retains good elasticity. Wired with a pink flecked light tan coloured loom,  matched type 32 receivers and black cased bell jackplug, all in excellent condition.  A very nice example of the rarer first pattern early internally wired C-type of definite wartime manufacture.  Stock code H23380.
