RAF type 27 microphone


Code: O19647

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 50% of the original paint although this is rather dulled.  The switch is in good working condition and the wiring loom securing tab is still in place -  see photographs.  The type 27 (more commonly known as the Type 28 when 'mounted' on a wiring loom) was sometimes used with the E-series and type G oxygen masks in addition to the second pattern microphone carrier masks.  A reasonable used example.  Stock code O19647.
