Description

RAF Type C flying helmet, 2nd pattern, complete with receivers with internal loom and their brown bell-shaped plug. The brown leather helmet is lined with chamois and shows use and normal age. The receivers retain the paper labels with model number and broad arrow acceptance marking. The lining shows some minor spots and a couple of tiny holes as can be seen in the images. There is some corrosion on some of the push studs and the metal receiver plug. The type C helmet was used from 1941 through 1945 and this example is likely from 1943/44.
