Aviators and their helmets


Even if it’s in bad state, this picture is very interesting because it shows several examples of the helmet made of hard leather, with goggles put on them, used by Italian pilots during the Great War.

One thought on “Aviators and their helmets

  1. This is a wonderful snapshot! Though it may be a game, I think this may be the way the pilot and machine gunner sat in the small cockpit. Italian aviators are less represented in the history of the war and deserve more attention.

    And your previous photos are splendid portraits too. I now read your posts on email and don’t comment as I should.
