When the US entered WW2 the USAAF’s standard summer flying helmet was the A-9. This was a close-fitting, OD gabardine helmet which had attachment hooks for the Types A-9/10 oxygen masks but no provision for communications equipment. This was soon deemed to be disadvantageous for the rapidly expanding USAAF. So, until something better was designed and produced, up-grading kits were made available. These were to be added to existing A-9s at unit level. The kit comprised of molded leather ear-cups to retain the standard R-14 receivers, soft cotton ear-muffs for comfort and to cut down on external noise and short lengths of webbing with snaps to attach the newer generation of oxygen masks.
