WW2 BRITISH RAF / AM ‘B’ TYPE FLYING HELMET
A super, new to the market, purchased directly from the flyer’s family, ‘B’ type flying helmet with art work to the forehead.
The helmet was well looked after in use and is still very supple with all poppers, studs and buckles present and in working order.
Ear cup zips in good working order also. (the foam ear cups had totally disintegrated, and as such the ear cups were cleaned out by myself).
The helmet is wired for later use with mid war receivers and face mask mic. (I assume the mic was used in a early mask with adaptor rings).
Interior with matching wear to the exterior. Good full maker label with clear details for size and date 1939.
Helmet fitted with Mk IV goggles brackets.
Helmet forehead with period painted art work in red and yellow paint.
A super item !
