My first two WW2 Navy/Marine flying helmet sets....


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I received some things in the post today and put together my first two WW2 Navy/Marine flying helmets with receivers and goggles. I found a pair of AO AN-6531 sunglasses that were a bit rough so I straightened and cleaned the frames (the lenses were in perfect condition).

 

On the left is a NAF 1092 helmet with TH-37 receivers and AN-6530 goggles, on the right is an AN-H-1 (NXsa-36914) helmet with ANB-H-1 receivers and Polaroid 1021 goggles. Throat mic is a T-30V.

 

Thanks to Tom and Paul for your help and information!

 

Hope you like my first two Navy/Marine flying helmet sets, Cheers, John

 

P.S. I soaked the sunglasses in baking soda and warm water (same as my wife's silver for her Norwegian national costume:)

Hi,

thanks, I was only going to have one helmet, then wanted one leather and one cloth, then... I have another on the way and still have not got what I really want!

My daughter received my wife's bunad for her 15th birthday last month, she wore it on the 17th ;)

Hi Flightpath! Nice helmets Man!! Same thing happened to me. I bought a flak helmet. Then I needed an oxy mask.. Then leather flight helmet... then goggles! and then i wanted just one more. Then I found I really needed the extra flak helmets to hold it all together.... and so it goes.........

I have the pieces coming in now for the 4th and LAST one now... God help me!!!
