1972 Dated RAF H-Type Oxygen Mask - Size Medium
An original RAF H type Oxygen Mask clearly dated 1972.
This pattern of oxygen mask came into issue with the RAF in late 1944 and saw Issue well into the post war years. This example is dated March 1972 and is a size medium.
The mask is the same construction as WW2 examples and features the full elasticated harness which will fit wartime helmets. The microphone is a post war example but this could easily be changed to a wartime Pattern if you so desired.
The condition of the mask is good but it has clearly been issued and used. There are small areas of cracking in the usual areas points and the rubber has darkened in some areas where it has been handled.
Overall a good example of an H type mask which would make a nice addition to an RAF collection.
