An original RAF H Type Oxygen mask dated 1963 and 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 1963 and features the harness used in conjunction with the ‘Bone Dome’ flying helmet. It features the early style Type 57 microphone as was used during the Second World War and into the post-war period.
The mask is date stamped in the usual place and reads ‘2 63’ denoting 1963 as the year of manufacture. The underside of the mask is also marked with ‘Medium’, 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 and bear in mind that this is a vintage, pre-owned item which may have small flaws commensurate with age.
Altogether a nice Cold War period oxygen mask that would make a good addition to a collection.
