LABELLED & NEAR MINT!! World War One - RFC Flying

World War One Flying Helmets simply don't come much better than this gorgeous example of the highly sought after "DUNHILL" Flying Helmet.

Used on the front cover of Mick Prodgers book, the "DUNHILL" Flying Helmet ranks alongside the likes of the "WARREN", MkI and Cowl Helmets as being truly representative of Royal Flying Corps headgear. Indeed I was very fortunate to have bought the "DUNHILL" Flying Helmet of Lt. Marcus Thurlow Wright as seen on page 132 of Mick's book. This is the Flying Helmet adorned with six lucky mascots on the fur peak.

The "DUNHILL" Helmet I'm offering here is as good as they come. The only real marks on it are sweat 'tide marks' around the front. Other than that the condition is wonderful.
