WINTER HELMET

 

RFC winter leather flying helmet, early pattern.

 

Following basically the same basic pattern as the Dunhill helmet, this unlabeled specimen (thus, official issue?) features some interesting differences. Presumably intended for some colder (or draftier) climatic conditions this helmet is lined with rabbit fur and includes a large extended neck flap which can be fixed in the up position by two press studs on the back of the helmet. These press studs are marked “ENGLISH MAKE” and “B Ltd.”

 

An unmarked fur lined private purchase goggle mask completes the display.
