    Hi guys won this on ebay on a horrendously cheap buy it now i really thought it would be rotten and no good but was shocked at the good condition when it turned up.It is named and marked up to a navigator from 25 squadron i assume it was mosquito and he was a navigator from the other items the seller sold looks like a house clearance guy.

    If you bought it from 'military traderUK' then heavily doubt the provenance. But - you have a very nice Frank Bryan B that has had the mods done on the temples to make wearing the Mk IVB goggles more practical! It looks a bit dusty, but a great helmet and it good shape they can set you back in the 400-600 pound range from a dealer or a fair.
