    its different Nick!
    Is that some kind of oriental word written on the centre top tape,
    I bet there is a big cheesy smile under that bottom tape to go with those eyes.
    I liked Andys theory about the chin straps, wish I had told him at the time.

    thanks Ben

    its still a bit unclear as to where this type of chin chin came from as the theory about the head set strap being used may not be right as that type of head set seems to be post war ??
