Peter Henley Mk.3C Flying Helmet " Bone Dome" (pg4 pilotequip)

The Helmet is Fully Wired with Dennis Ferranti Earphones and Microphone

It has a Double Visor With a Clear and Tined Visor

It Also has a Visor Cover with Stores Ref: 22C/7636746

The Mk.3C supersedes the Mk.1A/G also the MK.2A & 3A/B type helmets & will cover in one basic design a helmet for aircrews concerned with low & high altitude (rotary & fixed wing) with or without ejection seats.

The rigid outer shell of moulded glass fibre resonate is provided with a lining of shock absorbing cork. An internal cradle of nylon webbing minimizes the transmitted force & distributes it over as large an area of the head as possible. The soft comfortable padded lining is replaceable & its attachment to the shell forms a windproof seal, which together with the chinstrap, visor & oxygen mask ensures security of the helmet under severe blast conditions.

The oxygen mask attachment hooks are designed for use with a chain toggle harness MK.5 as on the P & Q type masks. (The P & Q types are identical in design & differ in size of face piece, Q being smaller.)

 The Mk.3C Helmet has a double visor system with a side mounted polycarbonate inner visor for blast & bird strike debris & an outer independently positioned anti-glare visor, both superimposed on common pivots. A side mounted locking device holds down the inner blast visor. The Mk.3A/B helmet has a single visor that locks in various positions on the centre rail, these visors were issued in various tints from clear to dark tinted.
