An original RAF MK 1A Bonedome Flying Helmet Dating from the 1960s.
The MK 1A Flying Helmet replaced the earlier and short lived MK1 'Bonedome' which came into issue during the 1950s as part of the 'Fast Jet Pilot System'. The helmet has been over painted an olive green colour as many of these helmets were in the 1970s. Its original silver paint finish can be seen in some areas where the olive colour has come away. The helmet has had the top rail removed as well as the interior webbing harness making this a project helmet more than anything, which has been reflected in the price.
Inside the helmet the original label is still present and bears the size of '2 Broad' along with the stores reference number 22c/1253082 and the designation of MK 1.A. (M).
The helmet is in reasonable condition with various signs of wear and use. Please study the pictures and bear in mind that this is a vintage item which may have small flaws commensurate with age.
A good project!
