Original 1996 Dated RAF G Type Flying Helmet - Size 4
An original RAF G Type Flying Helmet dated 1996 and in a large size 4.
This pattern of helmet came into issue with the RAF in the early post-war period with the earlier example being made in grey. In the late 1960s this was changed to green as per this example although the material and design remained the same.
This example comes complete with its original inner ear cushions as well as its receivers and wiring .
The original label is present inside the helmet and states the size as No. 4 and bares the 1996 date at the end of the contact number. The War Department broad arrow marking is also present on the label as is the RAF 22C flying clothing stores number.
The helmet is in good condition overall and displays very well.
A nice, clean example of this pattern of helmet.
