Supermarine Spitfire Mk VB: Little by Little.

French-Canadian Flight Sergeant Georges Nadon, a pilot of the 122 Sqn, ready for some action in his Spitfire at Hornchurch, May 1942.
Equiped with a neat Type C helmet and the “cumbersomely British” Type E Oxygene Mask; at this stage of the war the British flight gear had nicely evolved from its crude beginning (look the link below) yet this Canadian Flight Sergeant still conserved the deficient Type III goggles.
