MEGA RARE & ALMOST MINT!! MkI Type Flying Helmet w
This is an absolutely fantastic early Flying Helmet dating from late RFC-WWI to early RAF use.
The overall styling and panel manufacture is identical to that of the Royal Flying Corps MkI Flying Helmet. However this beauty has been retro-fitted with metal/leather shelled earpieces incorprating the very first "Gosport" communication tubes. One other very nice touch is the 'field-fitting' of a cotton Goggle Strap at the rear.
The overall condition of this Flying Helmet is exceptional! PLUS, it is a very large size...fits me very comfortably indeed.
A REAL 'FIND' IN THE WORLD OF EARLY AVIATION HEADGEAR!
