A 100% original 1st Pattern RAF C-Type flying helmet. This one is interesting in that it is made by Phelps & Co Limited of India. The leather is in good order, it shows some minor surface scrapes but nothing that a good polish would not sort out, all straps and poppers are good but 2 show surface rust to the outer side (see photos) this would clean up and all is still good and strong. The bennet’s buckle and strap are excellent, the rubber receiver housings are a little out of shape but good and pliable, if receivers were fitted then they would pull back into shape, the top of the left rubber has a very small edge split. The inside chamois lining is all in good order and it is nicely labelled and is a size 1 to fit a head of 6 ½ to 6 ¾ .
