    Indeed - it's in fabulous condition ! - Most of these shearling/cold weather types
    I've seen are ripped somewhere and the leather is cracked. Judging by the
    second photo Dave, you are no stranger to flight helmets !

    It is interesting in that there are no holes for Gosport tubes
    or attaching a headset/earphones.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    During the war, many were modified by the addition of leather earcups which held R-14 receivers. Some simply had holes cut over the ears so that regular headphones could be used with the helmet.
