1966 Dated RAF G Type Cloth Flying Helmet - Size 4

An original RAF G Type Flying Helmet dated 1966 and in a large size No.4.

This pattern of flying helmet came into use with the RAF in the 1950s replacing the short-lived but very similar F Type Helmet. It was designed to be worn underneath the newly issued Bonedome helmet or on its own and features pop studs to attach the oxygen mask too which would have been the H Type when first introduced.

The original label is still present inside the helmet with the correct 22c stores code, 1966 date and size marking. This helmet is the largest size issued - size No.4. It also features the War Department broad arrow marking.

The helmet comes complete with a set of ear donuts which were removable on this pattern being attached with pop studs. Inside this are the original receivers which are attached to an original wiring loom which features the correct small type plug on at the other end.

The condition of the helmet is good but it has clearly been issued and seen a lot of use. It does by no means show signs of excessive wear but is well soiled with sweat, particularly around the top section of the helmet. Overall however the helmet displays nicely and has a great ‘been there’ look.

A nice original G Type Flying Helmet with a clear early date and in a large desirable size 4.

Original WW2 Era British Army Officers Khaki Drill Tunic + Belt

An original World War Two era British Army Khaki Drill Officers Tunic as worn throughout the conflict in both the Middle and Far eastern campaigns.

This tunic is typical of those worn in WW2 by the British Army and Royal Navy and features scolloped pockets, shorts sleeves and an original matching waist belt.

This construction of the tunic looks indian as is often the case with KD items. All the stitching is typical of Indian made items and all the button holes are hand sewn.

As with many Khaki Drill items, these trousers are impossible to date exactly as they have no label, date or markers mark. They are however typical of World War Two manufacture and could certainly have been made in the conflict.

The jacket has been heavily laundered leaving some marks as can be seen in the pictures. There is also some soiling to the interior which again is pictured. This is all reflected in the price.

Overall a reasonable wartime era British KD tunic which would be suitable for Royal Navy and British Army re-enactment or as part of a display.

Original WW2 Period British Army Khaki Drill Trousers

An original pair of World War Two era British Army Khaki Drill trousers as worn throughout the conflict in both the Middle and Far eastern campaigns.

These trousers are typical of those worn in WW2 by the British Army, RAF and Royal Navy and features a wide leg, as was fashionable at the time; two slash pockets to each hip, buttoning side adjusters, a single rear pocket and interestingly a ticket pocket. This last feature leads me to believe that these were privately made for an Officer.

This construction of the trousers looks indian as is often the case with KD items. All the stitching is typical of Indian made items and all the button holes are hand sewn. There is a finer quality to the work on these trousers than is usual on Indian made item so I think they would have been be tailor made rather than off-the-peg.

As with many Khaki Drill items, these trousers are impossible to date exactly as they have no label, date or markers mark. They are however typical of World War Two manufacture and could certainly have been made in the conflict.

The trousers are in solid wearable condition and don’t appear to have had much use. Aside from a couple of marks to the lower legs (pictured) they are in very nice condition. The waist measures at 30”

Overall a good condition pair of wartime era British KD trousers in nice wearable condition. These would be suitable for RAF, Royal Navy and British Army alike.
