    Default M35 DD LW Bomber crew helmet and display.

    M35 DD 2nd LW. SE68 / Lot nr: 250. Bombcrew helmet for use over leather flight helmet.

    The normal German steel helmets (here a M35) were worn by flight crews commonly during the WWII.
    A great deal of photographic documentation attests to this.
    Crew members would either use large size helmets or helmets from which the liner had been removed so
    that they would fit comfortably over their flight helmets with radio gear.
    A Luftwaffe helmet air crews wore in flight when participating in raids with heavy anti-aircraft fire.

    Under the M35 there is a:

    LKp S 101 flight helmet with throat microphone.

    Dräger model 10-6702 Oxygen mask.
    The clip is marked Dräger. The mask’s housing is marked “10-6702 A1” and Gr 1.(size 1)
    It is also marked with the Dräger manufacturing code: “byd”.
    The mask is made of black rubber and were used primarily by bomber crews.

    The flight goggles are manufactured by Leitz.
    This small, two piece model has a single screw adjustment on the linking crossbar.
    The frame is aluminium with clear glass lenses and a rubber face mask.
    Sliding vents were provided in the bottom of each of the frames.

    Great displays and quality items thank you for showing these uncommon ensembles. I expect your thread will open a few eyes (including mine) who didn't realise Luftwaffe aircrew wore the Stalhelm on board aircraft.

    Beautiful helmet Anders...items like these are what this forum needs!I hope I'll be able to post my helmets soon and contribute!
    All should contribute...the ones with rare birds like the one you've posted and even those who only own shells touched up with Tamiya modeling colors!
    Thank you for sharing!
