RAF C-Type Leather Flying Helmet, Large Size 4

RAF Late Pattern C-Type Flying Helmet Size 4.

This helmet is complete with type 32 radio receivers, internal wiring loom and jack plug.

Air Ministry Ref No. embossed into the outside leather, 22C/880 (see photos) and inside chamois liner rubber stamped No. 4 (the largest size).

The chrome leather is in excellent and supple condition without any damage.
The rubber ear cups are still flexible, goggle straps and press studs are all present and working.
Elastic chin strap is a little soiled.
The inside chamois is in a 'used' condition.

It is named.

Size 4 C-Type helmets in good condition are now getting very hard to find, and this is an excellent example.
