I was in Bristol this morning doing a bit of militaria shopping, and one of the places I regularly visit had a pair of C-type flying helmets for sale. I know next to nothing about most WW2 flying gear, but thought they might be of interest here, so I took a number of pictures of the two and have linked them below. The second helmet was priced at £175, the first helmet was priced higher (unfortunately my camera flash whited the price label out in the picture and I can't remember what it was exactly!).
If anyone is interested, drop me a message and I'll forward some contact details.
I presume from the otherwise lack of interests that these either aren't particularly special, or are priced too highly for what they are. I have to say the more expensive of the two certainly was a cracker, only thing wrong was one popper was broken (which looked easily fixed), otherwise pretty clean and crisp.
