I recently purchased some flight gear from the estate of a retired Navy fighter pilot who enlisted in 1946.ese
There are several of the cloth flight helmets and it presents a learning opportunity for me as I have several variations to compare.
If any of the wizened can share info on these I'd appreciated!
I assume tan cloth predates sage green? I'm amazed at the variety of hooks and snaps! These are all basically the same helmet but the modificats vary greatly!
Were these only worn under the H4 style helmets or ?
