Vintage WWII Air Associates Leather Flight pilot helmet withgoggles. Pilots name
The helmet is very nice, the leather nice and pliable, with very little wear. The color is good, buckle and strap great, some used soiling on the inside as expected. The really cool thing about this helmet is that it has the pilot who used this helmet's name and nickname written on the inside " Mal" "Mallory". I don't have any information as to unit or the rest of his name but thought it was cool. I can't find a makers mark on the goggles. They are hinged at center, metal frames, elastic strap and then a kind of rubber around the outside edge of the frame. The rubber is srating to break down at the nose, it is still pliable but feels kind of tentative. The glass lenses are in very good condition with no breaks, chips or cracks and very little scratching.
