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 reasonably common and can be fitted to pre-war helmets, such as those made by 'D. Lewis' and similar, as well as the war time helmets including the C and D Type helmets.
The set features 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 very nice condition whilst the metalwork is also good but showing limited signs of corrosion.
Altogether a nice set pf period Gosport tubes which display well.
