Stores reference 6D/105. Classic fabric oxygen mask synonymous with pilots and aircrew of the Battle of Britain period. The overall shape of the mask is excellent and the 'flexible' flat solder 'bar' used to shape the nose of the mask to the wearer's face appears to be intact/complete. The cloth is generally good but does have some moth damage. This is most notable on the left side of the nose and upper cheek (as worn) where a previous owner has glued patches over the larger holes in an attempt to reduce their impact. Further moth damage can be seen on the lower left side, there are a couple of holes in the bottom section and three on the right side. The mask's chamois lining is in very good '+'condition, really quite clean and soft. The microphone mounting ring is equally good and complete with reference number stamped into the metal. This mask has been fitted a pair of face defender / studs to enable connection with a flying helmet. Sold as seen, unwired and without a microphone but these can be supplied separately if required. Overall this is a good example of a now very rare mask and ideal for a Battle of France or Battle of Britain display. Stock code O24537.
