RAF type 27 microphone
Stores reference 10A/12572. Distinctive black painted 'ball-shaped' microphone housing with angular metal on/off switch mounted on the top. Complete with remnants of the original wiring loom and rubber grommet at the point where the loom enters the housing. It retains approximately 40% of the original paint although this is rather dulled. The switch functions correctly. Type 27's (more commonly known as the Type 28 when 'mounted' on a wiring loom) were sometimes used with the E-series and type G oxygen masks in addition to the second pattern microphone carrier masks. A good used example. Stock code O19644.
