    Hello members,

    I got this leather cap, it looks like an wartime pilot cap but I am not sure. The 2 flaps looks not original atached, the replaced later.
    All information is welcome.

    I think it's a reworked post war naval helmet. It should have plastic head phones - you can see where they've been removed. I'll see if I can find a reference...

    In the second link there's a picture of a non-commissioned seaman wearing one of these and it looks very much post war and non-aircrew.

    I wouldn't trust either link as a source because sellers know a WW2 flying helmet will always be a more attractive to buyers...

    I'd say this was a torpedo or deck crew helmet that's been messed with. During the war, such personnel wore a version with no audio gear which i'd say this example once had.

    If you google 'Шлем катерника-торпедиста' you will see what Russian internet has to offer on these.
