An original RAF G Type Flying Helmet dated 1967 and in a size No.2.
This pattern of flying helmet came into use with the RAF in the 1950s replacing the short-lived but very similar F Type Helmet. It was designed to be worn underneath the newly issued Bonedome helmet or on its own and features pop studs to attach the oxygen mask too which would have been the H Type when first introduced.
The original label is still present inside the helmet with the correct 22c stores code, 1967 date and size marking. This helmet is the largest size issued - size No.2. It also features the War Department broad arrow marking.
The helmet comes complete with a set of ear donuts which were removable on this pattern being attached with pop studs.
The condition of the helmet is good but it has clearly been issued and seen a lot of use. It does by no means show signs of excessive wear but has signs of age and use.
Overall a nice original G Type Flying Helmet with a clear date and in nice condition.
