Original WW2 RAF Type 48 Microphone - Original Packaging

Code: 54134


An original RAF Type 48 Microphone Assembly complete in its original packaging and in fantastic unissued condition.

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 coloured cloth covered lead which features a two pin connector which fits the C, D and E Type helmets.

The microphone comes complete in its original cosmoline wrapping which is a type of waxed paper regularly used by the British military for packaging. It features a paper label to the top which reads '10A/14381 Microphone Assy Type 48 Qty 1'.  

The wrapping has been opened to reveal a mint, unused item which still has its paper Air Ministry label around the loom.

A nice original wartime example which would be very hard to upgrade!
