A rare Fleet Air Arm N-Type flying helmet. These are often confused with RAF D-Type flying helmets. This helmet made from light weight fabric and was for use in tropical climates.
The helmet is in good condition overall. There is some light staining from use on the back of the helmet and the interior has service wear. The zips are a little grubby, but work well and have ring pulls. The leather is intact on both, but the left side leather earcup has some deterioration in the leather, particularly behind the zip and probably as a result of poor storage (please see the photos). There are no holes caused by the deterioration. Rubber receiver cups are present inside the leather earcups, these are probably for Gosport tubes. These may have been added later and can be removed.
Please contact me if you'd like more photos.
This is a relatively rare helmet, however the price reflects the condition.
