R.A.F. H-type Oxygen Mask - WW2 Dated

Size Medium. Dated 3-45. (March 1945). Rare wartime dated example of this mask. The rubber facepiece is in very good, quite clean condition and retains good overall shape. Some cracking of the harness retaining lugs over the nose and shows some stress crazing if flexed. The rubber sheath that covers the wiring loom attachment point is also worn/cracking. The pearl grey suede lining has average soiling. Fitted with a good type 57 microphone assembly and a lightly soiled mid tan loom. The harness is complete but a bit faded, soiled and with some loss of elasticity. These late war H-masks are very difficult to obtain now in any condition. Considerably rarer than a G-type mask. Good \'+\' used overall. Stock code O15216.
