An original set of Gosport tubes as worn in a number of patterns of flying helmets before and during the Second World War.

This pattern of Gosport tubes are specifically designed to be used with certain patterns of pre-war helmets including those made by 'D. Lewis' and 'S. Lewis'.

The set features chrome plated metal receivers which slide into the metal ends located on the end of the tubes themselves. The other end of the tubes meet in another metal tube which in turn would have fitted into the corresponding part of the aircraft.

The tubes are cloth covered and in good condition with limited signs of age etc. The metalwork is also good with some signs of age.

Altogether a nice set of period Gosport tubes which display well.
