    Ewan,

    To complete the set, you can install a pair of ANB-H1 earphones in the ear mountings (called donuts by the pilots) that can be found as part of of the HS-33 headphones. You would also need AN-6530 or B8 goggles and finally, an oxigen mask, such as the A-14. The earphones, oxigen mask and goggles can be found with relative ease at E-bay. The display with all the pieces together is quite impressive. But beware, once you start collecting USAAF gear , it will be hard to stop.

    If you want to know more about WWII USAAF gear, donīt miss these books:

    Combat flying clothing and Combat flying equipment, both by C.G. Sweeting.


    Regards,

    Ewan, great flying cap. Nice size too. I've only seen them in small. Check out my aviator goggles I found in an antique store last year. The lenses are mint without a scratch. The guy thought they were vintage welding goggles and let then go cheap ! They would look nice with that helmet.

    Cheers, Al

    Ewan,

    Those are it. You can dismount the AHB-H1 receivers from the headset and place them in the "donuts" of your flying helmet.
