COLD WAR ERA BRITISH RAF MK-1A PILOTS HELMET WITH OXYGEN MASK AND BOX OF ISSUE
The Mk.1A was issued in the early 1950`s and was the first RAF helmet with a fixed visor, the visor locked at various positions and was issued in various tints from clear to dark tinted. The RAF Mk.1A was originally used by all front line pilots flying rotary & fixed wing aircraft, this included subsonic & supersonic aircraft, everything from early Hunters to Lightning's and continued in limited use until the late 70`s and finally used by training squadrons (EFTS/UAS) until the late 80`s. Although designed to be used with the G-Type Helmet and H-Type oxygen-mask, the helmet was also used with the A-13 oxygen-mask & later the P-Type oxygen-mask.
This example comes complete with the inner cloth helmet, oxygen mask and box of issue. no extra lenses. Nice collectable item. Note does not come with the head that is shown in the images to display the helmet.
