RAF Type C* Flying Helmet

A scarce type C* (C-Star) Leather Flying Helmet.

This type C* Helmet was the final pattern of the wartime C type leather flying helmet.

It was issued for the use in early jet fighters (Meteor & Vampires) that were just being delivered to RAF squadrons.

It is basically the same pattern as the C-type helmet, but it has press studs fitted to the brow and sides to accept the new Mk 1 Visor (see last photo).

The wiring loom is also slightly different in that it has three wires connecting to each earphone/receiver.
This was to improve radio transmissions received through the earphones, and to accept the new type of aircraft radios being developed.

The helmet is in an excellent used condition and is fully wired.

It looks to be a size 3 (not stamped).

It has good rubber earphone cups and type 32 receivers.
An internal cotton braided wiring loom terminates with a standard wartime pattern bell/jack plug.

An excellent example of this rare helmet.

RAF Air Crew Europe Medal Group KIA

RAF ACE Medal Group of three, to Flying Officer, Peter Leslie Edwards.

F/O, Edwards flew with 408 (RCAF) Squadron, based at RAF Balderton, Nottinghamshire.

He was a Navigator/Observer flying in the cumbersome twin engined Hampden Bomber, and part of P/O, K.H. Taylor's crew.

On the night of 2/3 June 1942, Hampden AT154 took off from RAF Balderton on a night bombing mission to Essen.
Skipper was Pilot: P/O. Taylor, Navigator: F/O. Edwards, Wireless Operator/AG: Sgt. Ronson, Air Gunner: Sgt. McKenzie.

As the squadron passed over the Dutch coast they were intercepted by German Night Fighters.
Unfortunately for P/O: Taylor and crew, they were targeted by one of the Luftwaffe leading night fighter aces, Hauptmann Helmut Lent.
Flying in a heavily armed Bf 110, he raked the doomed Hampden with bullets and cannon shells, which sent it spiralling down burning and out of control, leaving the crew no chance of escaping.
It crashed in the Ijsselmeer just East of Medemblik, sadly killing all on board.
This was F/O: Edwards 18th Operational Sortie, his body was never found.

A fine KIA group, in need of further research.

Luftwaffe Heinkel He 111 Crashed Radio Part

Luftwaffe Heinkel He 111, Radio Antenna Jettison Control.

This is one of only a few pieces that were recovered from a shot down He 111, that crashed at Roe's Farm, Desford, Leic's, 8-9th April, 1941 (see last photo).

We were told that it was taken as a souvenir by a local man's father who was in the nearby Home Guard.
He was one of the troop who had the job of guarding the wreckage before a RAF Maintenance Unit cleared it all away.

Heinkel He 111P-4 (2962) was shot down by RAF 151 Squadron, night fighter Hurricane pilot, P/O, R.P. Stevens DFC.
It was on a bombing mission to Coventry.

Two of the stricken Heinkel crew managed to bale out before it went down, but the other two remained on board and miraculously survived the impact of the crash.
All of the crew were 'rounded up' and taken prisoner.

The unit, albeit damaged, is in surprisingly good condition.
The top and inside instruction plates are still legible, and the part number is still visible on the casing.
The plate on the inside roughly translates to "Pull the red handle (missing), and the antenna is thrown off".

Size, 75 x 70 x 30 mm.
