Hi everyone...

A friend of mine was given this helmet once upon a time...I'd like help him out with more information about it...He has also indicated whether anyone had a spare visor for this unit to replace the existing one. (Long stretch but if you don't ask...well...you never know....)

Thanks and keep well. Apologies if I've totally blundered this photo upload.

Looks like a Gueneau SOS 316 Flying Helmet with an Ulmer Type 82 O2 Mask, the helmets were used in the SAAF, the Heli guys used the Type 317 with boom mic, the 316 had 2 visors, a inner transparent visor which came down under acceleration (upon ejection) and a tinted outer visor, the 317 type had a yellow visor which we incorporated into the 316 helmet, was a bit of a schlep during night flying because we had to change back to the transparent one.
The ulmer 82 mask was a straight forward mask with a :
-Facepiece
-Exoskeleton
-Supply tube
-Inhalation valve (Demand type)
-Expiration valve
-Microphone
