    Thanks Harryamb2. Yes, I could use an AAF A-8 with chin cup and ear cups and an early O2 mask with the bladder rebreather and a pair of B-7 goggles. I like the RAF BOB type B and the early O2 masks and early type C (two snap) flying helmets but I don't have any in my collection. I have 2 AAF A-9s and another A-11 not pictured. Anyway, I'm happy with my small collection of RAF and AAF flying helmets, this is about all I want for my collection.
