    Hey Chris,

    How goes it on the Island?

    Would you be interested in possibly parting with the headphones? Can you PM me with your email address so we can discuss off line?

    I have a Mic exactly like the one pictured, it has a black push button on top. I don't these were mounted in the oxygen masks like the one in my photos.

    Thanks Steven. This makes number four, the others are two Type B helmets plus I have a Luftwaffe LKpW101 flying helmet in my collection of German items.

    They have a hole for the wire and two posts, there is a small crack in the bakelite on one . The harness has all the wire eyes for the headphones mic and the female connector with wire cut .

    Wonder if those were used in Type B helmets. From what I see on line, this is what the earphones used in Type C helmets look like.

    You might be right , but I'd imagine one would fit the other . Look to be about the same diameter .
    Cheers Chris
