When the RFC was formed in 1912 there was no standard issue protective clothing for aviators. The first RFC flying helmet to be given an official designation was introduced in 1917. Standard pattern MK 1 helmets were produced in many configurations as civilian manufacturer’s with Government contracts were still producing helmets for their retail outlets and each manufacturer produced their own slightly different variants which all met the Government contract requirements. In an effort to standardise RFC goggles the ‘Goggle Mask MK 1’ was introduced in 1917 based on the popular commercial ‘triplex goggles’ (see pages 10-13 of the book Vintage Flying Helmets by Prodger).

It has the correct leather chin strap with buckle & press stud fastened flaps. The helmet is clean and undamaged with just light service wear. The lining has a contemporary label ‘Sparks & Dickenson 1 & 3 Mosely Street Manchester’ (this Company is listed in Slater’s business directory as operating between 1911 & 1915. They can also be traced in other directories until 1924.). The helmet is approx. UK size 6 ½. The helmet comes with the original RFC MK 1 Goggles with which the helmet was found. The goggles have the correct leather face mask to cover the nose & brow of the wearer and nickel plated brass frames with tear drop shaped lenses.

The leather is impressed with matching WD Air Branch Mark, ‘Goggle Mask MK1’ designation and manufacturer detail ‘Howard Spencer, 19 Hanover Sq (London)’.
