Original 1974 Dated RAF H Type Oxygen Mask - Size Medium
An original RAF H Type Oxygen mask dated 1974, complete with an Amplivox 13100 microphone.
This pattern of oxygen mask came into issue with the RAF in late 1944 and saw Issue well into the post war years. This example is dated April 1974 and is a size medium.
The mask is the same construction as WW2 examples and features the correct H type harness which is complete meaning that it can be attached to a C, D, E, F or G flying helmet. The microphone is a post war example but this could easily be changed to a wartime Pattern if you so desired.
The condition of the mask is good but it has clearly been issued and used. There are small areas of cracking in the usual areas and the rubber has darkened in some areas where it has been handled.
Overall a reasonable example of an H type mask which would make a nice addition to an RAF collection.
