Size medium. Dated 3-45. Extremely rare wartime dated example of this otherwise relatively common mask. The rubber facepiece retains very good overall shape although the lower edge is curling inwards a little. The rubber is a bit grubby but remains very pliable with no visible cracking at all. The pearl grey suede lining is complete and remains very clean. The mask is fitted with a type 57 microphone assembly with a pink flecked dark tan coloured loom and the correct large 2-pin socket, type 614, 10H/18196. The harness is a bit soiled/faded but the elasticated section remains good with the original rubber bands in place. These late war H-masks are very difficult to obtain in any condition and are considerably rarer than the G-type mask. A very good '+', lightly used example that might be improved to 'excellent' with careful cleaning. Certainly one of the best we've offered for a long time. This came from the estate (via his son) of a navigator who flew on Lancasters with 207 Squadron between 1944 and 1947. It will be supplied with a few basic service details and 2 photocopied photos.
