MAGNIFICENT!! Battle of Britain RAF Btype Flying H

The finest Btype I've seen for an awful long time!, it's the LARGEST size!

Fitted with the rivetted MkIV Goggle Brackets synonomous with early WWII RAF Btype Flying Helmets.
Apart from small one inch long area of damage the leather is just about perfect, soft, supple and very strong! Both Bennetts Buckles are in excellent condition and although this Flying Helmet has been worn the internal chamois is still extremely clean. The original Air Ministry label is still in place showing the much desired "size4".

The leather chinstrap still has its metal tip in place, both zips work fine and still have their original leather pull tabs.

It's not difficult to see how great this Helmet looks with a pair of MkIVB Flying Goggles and a first class TypeD Oxygen Mask. These are both currently on my website.

Pictures on the website come nowhere near to doing this Battle of Britain set-up justice.
