RAF type H oxygen mask, WW2 dated

Code: O22264    

Sold

Size medium.  Dated 3-45 (March 1945).  Rare wartime dated example of this otherwise relatively common mask.  The rubber facepiece is soiled but in quite good condition.  Overall shape is good but the edges are folding inwards a bit.  The rubber is suprisingly  flexible and largely free of damage.  There is cracking on the harness retaining lugs, around the inspiratory valve and microphone.  In addition there is some deterioration around the edges of the mask.   The pearl grey suede lining is complete and has average soiling.  Fitted with a rather worn looking type 57 microphone assembly and a black flecked mid tan coloured loom with correct large 2-pin socket.  The harness is complete, though grubby, a little ragged and lacking elasticity.  These late war H-masks are very difficult to obtain in any condition and are considerably rarer than a G-type mask.  A reasonably good used example that displays well.  Stock code O22264.
