WWI RFC OLD BRITISH LEATHER FLYING HELMET

 

FLYING HELMETA leather flying helmet in exceptionally good condition for its age.

 There are no identifying marks within the helmet, but it appears to be of a type warn by early aviators during WWI.

 The leather is superbly soft and supple; the press-studs (snappers) make firm contact both on the protective ear pieces and on the fold-down peak. The leather chin strap has been repaired at some point in the helmets history and would benefit from a few strengthening stitches.

 The lining, which is a soft chamois leather is nicely intact, with no tears or rips.

 The helmet is part fur lined, around the neck-piece and the ears, as is the folding flap at the front.

A very fine example of an early 20th century flying helmet.FLYING HELMET
