Original WW2 RAF G Type Oxygen Mask

Original WW2 RAF G Type Oxygen Mask

Code: 52147


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. The 10A marked rubber dust ring is still present to the outside of the microphone and the original harness is also still present . The bottom of the mask is marked 'large' and the interior still retains its chamois lining, although some of the glue has dried out.

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 original wire nose clip is still present although has pulled out of the right hand retaining lug as can be seen in the pictures. 

A nice original WW2 RAF Oxygen mask which would make a good addition to any aviation collection.
