1 pilot's leather helmet. In a very good condition, it is a. Early RAF Type C flying helmet, first type (unwired) and extremely rare Size 4, complete with.
Furthermore, an oxygen mask, complete with aviator glasses. The speaking microphone in the oxygen mask is there with "on & off" button, with cable.The goggles comes with the pilots hood, but I don't think they are a pair. The leather pilot's hood, which was used by combat pilots in, among planes like Spitfire's and Hurricain's, and by pilots of bombardment aircrafts such as the AVRO-Lancaster.
A really nice example of the first type C helmet, unwired with front and rear goggle strap tabs, leather chin strap and Bennetts buckle, in a very rarely encountered size 4 (ex-large). Only about 15% of all Type C helmets were made in this size and yet they are the most sought after among collectors.
Leather is in excellent condition, soft and pliable with no flaking, peeling or damage. Best of all, helmet has a great A-crown-M label inside with its 22C/452 number, and is also embossed on the leather, below the left ear, with the A-crown-M and the 22c/452 number. A very good used helmet in a size that's near impossible to find these days! In the inside of the helmet is the pilots name E.
Furthermore, there are two RAF cockpit instruments A. M marked, one Smith Oil pressure meter. There is a mistake in the first discription.
