RAF type H oxygen mask, WW2 dated
Size medium. Dated 2-45 (February 1945). Rare wartime dated example of this otherwise relatively common mask. The rubber facepiece retains good shape, is clean and in excellent flexible condition. Other than minor crazing on the harness retaining lugs the rubber is crack free - even when flexed. The pearl grey suede lining is complete and has average soiling. Fitted with a very good type 57 microphone assembly and a mid tan coloured loom with correct large 2-pin socket. The rubber loom sheath is a bit perished but this could be replaced if required. The harness is complete, though faded with little elasticity remaining. These late war H-masks are very difficult to obtain in any condition and are considerably rarer than a G-type mask. A very good '+' to excellent used example. Stock code O14718.
