RAF B-type flying helmet/D-type oxygen mask: Modellers needed.

I know there are other similar British propaganda posters made with “gun” and “ship” instead of “plane”, but the kid in me can’t resist the pun.

Primitively cool early-WW2 RAF headgear. Regrettably, the model, Sgt. Ernst J. Holland, died in action a few weeks after this photo was taken in his Wellington.

Photo. IWM.
