A superb First Pattern RAF C-Type Leather Flying helmet.

Air Ministry Ref. No. 22C/451.
This reference is stamped into the leather and also found on the inside cotton label (see images).

A good size 3.

The Bennett's buckle and chin strap are in an excellent condition.

The outside leather is very supple and clean without any scuffs or cuts.

The inside chamois leather lining is clean, although it is in a 'used' condition.

In an Excellent overall condition.
