RAF flying helmet receivers (reproductions).

 

With originals being so difficult to find (and expensive) these reproduction flying helmet receivers do the job of keeping the shape of your helmet ear cups and looking the part. Cast in resin from originals, they are marked with the A-crown-M and 10/12401 number. The screws undo to allow a wring loom to be looped together and inserted then secures by replacing the lower screw.

Original wartime US Army Air Forces jacket sleeve decal for the A-2, B-3 etc.

 

Scarce original water transfer (decal) for the upper sleeve of the A-2 / B-3 flight jacket etc. It would be slid into position then sealed with a clear polyacrylate coating. Most of these have worn off, or cracked and peeled over time. No guarantees this will work - it is 70+ years old! Great display item though and almost impossible to find.
