    Default Canadian WWII Flight Cap / Helmet ?

    Found this Buffalo Cap and Neckwear Ltd. of Winnipeg flight cap at local sale - RCAF E-type summer flying helmet.
    My research points out to it being WWII period cap, but again looking for some expert opinion on period and use.
    I am not a collector so it will be sold or traded, so if anybody is interested - let me know.

    Thanks !

    A big Thank You to Mr. Meyle for the opportunity to purchase
    this helmet, and permission to post some photos here.
    It was only after I saw adverts on FB and Kijiji that
    I realized it was the same one and contacted
    him. It will look fine among its brethren.

    Excuse the pics, I took a few this evening after work
    with indoor lighting:
