RAF C-Type Leather Flying Helmet

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

Air Ministry Ref. No. 22C/879, 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 is in good order, although a little tired.

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

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

A pair of type 16 earphone receivers are housed in the helmet's very good, supple black rubber ear cups.
