R.A.F. G-type Oxygen Mask


Stores Ref. 6D/644. Size Medium. The rubber is generally in very good condition and is quite clean. The mask retains good overall shape and is very flexible. Two of the nose-wire retaining lugs show deterioration and the third has split leaving the wire free. This is a very simple repair. The mask has other minor stress cracking around the inspiratory valve and harness retainin lugs but is essentially very sound. The harness retains reasonable colour and some elasticity plus remnants of some of the original elastic bands. The brown suede lining is really very clean. Fitted with a type 48 microphone assembly in very good condition (bar the rubber sleeve to the 2-pin socket) making it suitable for all internally wired helmets. Very good '+' overall condition. Stock code O14153.
