SOLD

An original H Type Oxygen Mask dated April 1954 complete with a type 54 microphone in a size medium

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 the mid 1950s but is fitted with the large wartime pattern mic so would be usable for a late war scenario. It would also be ideal for an early Jet-Age period collection

The mask is in good condition for its age as can be seen in the photographs but does have some signs of cracking to the rubber. The rubber face piece shows signs of use and handling and is typical of what a mask would have looked like on active service. The interior features the chamois lining and all the metalwork is in good condition.

All in all a nice example of an H-Type oxygen mask which would make a good addition to any aviation collection.
