An original RAF Type 48 Microphone Assembly dating from the Second World War with a dark coloured braided loom.
This pattern of microphone was fitted to the E, E* and G Type oxygen mask during WW2. It features the reference number of 10A/12570 to the front and an on / off switch. It is wired with a wartime pattern khaki cloth covered lead which features a two pin connector which fits the C, D and E Type helmets.
The item is in good condition with no real signs of wear or use. It appears to be an unissued example and still retains its cardboard stores tag.
A good original wartime example with the rare pattern of dark braided cloth.
