NAMED & DATED 1938 French Flying Helmet with very

Surely worthy of research, this French hard shell Flying Helmet carries its original 1938 makers label and is named to a "HENRY P".
The Helmet was used with a pair of Flying Goggles I am not familiar with. Very similar to the WILLSON MkI and MkII Flying Goggle these have an unknown makers mark on the nose bridge. They are also one of the very few double strapped Goggles I've come across. The overall condition isn't great with degradation of the cushions, but having said that the cushions are chamois lined so the Goggles are still structurally sound. The curved lenses are fine, the frames are aged but good and both original straps are in place but no longer elasticated....A very fine quality pair of Flying Goggles indeed.
