During World War II, the Germans had organised the seaborne invasion of Britain (Operation Sealion) which depended on the German Air Force having control of the skies. Between the 10 July to 31 October 1940 the Royal Air Force defeated the Germans in an action referred to as 'The Battle of Britain' and the invasion was cancelled.
This Battle of Britain Fighter Pilots helmet is made from pewter and is mounted on a blue pencil. The pencil is printed with 'Battle of Britain' and the silhouette of a Spitfire.
