RAF 1st Pattern C-Type Flying Helmet

First Pattern RAF C-Type Leather Flying helmet.

Air Ministry Ref. No. 22C/451, size 3.

The Bennett's buckle and goggle straps are in an excellent condition.

The leather chin strap retains its metal end tip.

The outside leather is in very good condition, and the rubber ear cups are still very supple and good.

The inside chamois leather lining is clean, although it is in a 'used' condition and may have been cleaned.

Overall condition is very good 'used'.
