RAF C-Type Flying Helmet, First Pattern

First Pattern RAF C-Type Leather Flying helmet.

Air Ministry Ref. No. 22C/450, size 2.
This reference number is stamped into the leather (see photo).

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

The outside leather is still nice and supple.

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

Complete with early pattern external wiring loom and jack plug, 10A/12570 microphone, and a pair of type 16 earphone receivers.

In a very good condition.
