RAF C-Type Leather Flying Helmet

A late pattern Fully Wired, RAF C-Type Leather Flying Helmet.

Appears to be a size 3, Air Ministry Ref. No. 22C/879.

The outer leather is very nice and supple, without any damage.
All the straps, press studs & goggle strap with buckle are again perfect.
The Elastic chin strap is in great shape.

Inside the chamois leather liner is nice and clean, although used, and without any damage but it has some light verdigris staining (see photo).

The electrics consist of a superb purple coloured internal wiring loom and Jack plug, both in excellent condition.
A pair of type 32 earphone receivers which are housed in the helmet's excellent black rubber ear cups.
