RAF C-Type Flying Helmet

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

Air Ministry Ref. No. 22C/879 (stamped on the side) size 3.

The outer leather is very good and supple, and without any damage.

All the straps and press studs are complete and working.

The elastic chin strap, although a little 'tired' is in good order.

Inside the chamois leather liner is in a good condition.
It is without any damage but it has some staining due to being used (see photo).

The electrics consist of a tan coloured Internal wiring loom and an early 'brown' Jack plug, both in good condition.

A pair of type 32 earphone receivers are housed in the helmet's excellent black rubber ear cups.
