This is an attempt on my part, forgive me if I am off the mark.
I found this on the www.invaluable.com site. What seems to be the exact match. This is what was displayed...
Quote from site:WW2 British Pattern Glider Pilot Flying Helmet....early issue Example A scarce early example. The fiber skull with brown painted finish and fitted with the lower section of the C type flying helmet. (on the model on display on site) Clear crowned AM stamp and number.
This example has no provision for an oxygen mask and is an external wired style. Also, no velvet patches to the lining at the chin (on the online model) that was sold actually.
The www.bellsaviationmuseum.org site had similar helmets. One described G-1 Gunner Auxilary Helmet with A-8 Flight Helmet.
Very interesting indeed. Thanks for the display.
Yes, I am sure that I am way off to be sure, but it is interesting how close the styles are. I love the opportunity this site allows to share, think, make effort and learn. Every time I check into this site there is something interesting about our heritage to learn.
