RAF C-Type Leather Flying Helmet - Largest Size

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

Air Ministry Ref. No. 22C/880, size 4 (Largest Size).

Ref. No. stamped on the side, albeit feint.

The outer leather is good and supple.

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 (see photo).

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

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