Original WW2 RAF G Type Oxygen Mask
An original RAF G Type Oxygen Mask dating from the Second World War.
This pattern of oxygen mask was introduced into service in 1942 and stayed in use until late 1944 when it was replaced by the H Type Oxygen Mask making this a guaranteed wartime item. The mask is made from green rubber and is fitted with a Type 48 microphone which has the stores reference of 10A/12570 embossed on the front. The 10A marked rubber dust ring is still present to the outside of the microphone and the original harness is also intact. The bottom of the mask is marked 'large' and the microphone still retains its wiring loom and two pin connecting plug.
The mask displays well but shows signs of age and wear as they often do. The rubber has darkened in colour and the interior is soiled from wear. The wire nose clip is missing and the edges of the mask are 'dog eared' as can be seen in the pictures. Please take time to study the pictures provided.
A good original WW2 RAF Oxygen mask which would make a nice addition to any aviation collection.
