Original 1971 Dated RAF H Type Oxygen Mask - Size Large
An original RAF H Type Oxygen mask dated 1971 and in a size large.
This pattern of oxygen mask came into issue with the RAF in late 1944 and saw Issue well into the post war years. This particular example dates from 1971 and features the harness used in conjunction with the ‘Bone Dome’ flying helmet. It features an Amplivox 13100 microphone as was standard during this period.
The mask is date stamped in the usual place and reads ‘1 71’ denoting January 1970 as the month and year of manufacture. The underside of the mask is also marked with ‘large’, which refers to size, and the War Department broad arrow marking
The mask is in good condition for its age with only limited signs of wear and use. It displays well but please study the pictures for a better idea of condition.
Altogether a nice Cold War period oxygen mask that would make a nice addition to a collection.
