RAF Type E* oxygen mask.

Very nice original Type E* mask. Rubber is the harder, shiny type (E/E* masks tend to be either soft and floppy with a mat surface or a slightly harder, shiny rubber, such was the divergent technology of the time). This mask remains nicely pliable and retains its shape well with a small area at the nose where the edge has crumbled very slightly, but it displays very well and is overall in very good condition. Clean chamois edge lining. Good harness with some elasticity. fitted with a Type 48 mic. with moisture screen. Valve assembly installed in the funnel. Originals are getting very hard to find in decent condition.

RAF A-13A pressure breathing oxygen mask for early jets.

 

Interesting early example of the RAF issue

A-13A pressure demand oxygen mask which is actually a modified US made mask (later examples were made in the UK under licence from MSA). After trials with the Type J and M masks, the RAF decided the US made masks were superior and used them as interim while the P and Q masks were under development. Condition is very good indeed; the rubber facemask is superb, tube is excellent and all fittings and hardware are present. As is often the case, some of the plastic edging to the microphone switch assembly has chipped away but this doesn't affect the function in any way. A very good example.

Please note: the US mask helmet clip seen in some of the photos is NOT included! It got caught up in the strap by accident while photographing the mask!

RAF Type E* oxygen mask, Sefton replica with original Type 48 microphone assembly.

 

Another excellent example of the great work produced by Sefton Clothing Co. Essentially a new moulded facepiece (which will not deteriorate like originals) fitted with 100% original webbing harness, straps and metal hardware, plus an original Type 49 microphone. These were used in the film  production of Red Tails and more recently Masters of the Air. No longer in production and collectors' items in their own right. Excellent condition.

RARE 2-45 dated RAF Type H oxygen mask in outstanding condition.

 

Rare wartime dated RAF Type H oxygen mask with a clear 2-45 moulded into the rubber alongside the microphone housing. Rubber is soft and pliable with a good grey-green patina and light evidence of wear in the suede lining. No signs of stress cracks. Early large Type 57 microphone and, interestingly, it features the smaller plug usually fitted on Type 48 microphones. I've often said that wartime dated examples of the H mask are among the rarest of WWII RAF kit - even though the mask remained in production until the 1980s. It was issued primarily to high altitude photo-recon pilots and bomber crews.

RAF Type G oxygen mask with tube and Type 48 microphone.

 

Outstanding example of the now quite scarce Type G oxygen mask, complete with its correct breathing tube (hose) and fitted with a Type 48 microphone. The mask is in fatastic condition, the grey-green rubber soft and pliable, with no signs of any stress cracks, not even around the lugs supporting the nose wire. The harness is extremely clean but has lost some elasticity. The brown suede lining is fresh and clean - evidently the mask was never issued or worn.  The microphone is clean with all paint intact and the short cord and plug ready to go on a helmet. It is fitted with the wider gauge hose introduced late in the war, complete with Air Ministry marked bayonet connector and crocodile clip.

Early fast jet RAF oxygen mask, Type M-2.

One of the early jet age RAF masks which was issued for a very brief time and ultimately dropped in favour of the US A-13A mask. Black rubber mask body complete with tube and extension hose for attaching to the pressure jerkin. Mask is in good shape, the rubber nice and pliable, but some slight wear and a small tear to the interior skirt where the rubber is very thin, and the maleable nose wire protrudes very slightly at the top of the mask. That said, these are minor issues and the mask displays very well. Fitted with correct harness and clip and tagged for RAF stores. Excellent for early-mid 1950s Cold War exhibit.

Box of 2 unused filter canisters for WWII USN MSA oxygen rebreather kit dated 1943.

A scarce accessory for the US Navy rebreather apparatus carried in most USN aircraft for use with the Type C oxygen mask and others. These filters mount on the side of the apparatus and contained charcoal for filtering out CO2 during the rebreathing process. Two original and unopened canisters contained in their original manufacturer's packing box as issued, USN property marjed and dated July 1943. The boxes evidently got damp at some point and there is surface rust on the green canisters which has stained the paper labels, however the labels are intact and still legible.

RAF issue A-13A oxygen mask

Scarce pressure demand oxygen mask of US design and origin, first used by USAAF pilots in WWII. This is a 1950s US made example by MSA with Sierra Engineering hardware. Later RAF issue masks were made under license in the UK. They were used by RAF jet pilots for a short time in the 1950s while the Air Ministry worked on developing a suitable pressure breathing mask of the their own. The RAF version had a Type 57 microphone installed with the external switch. Mask is in great condition, the rubber excellent with no stiff or sticky spots, fabric tape with a name and details written on, good hose/tube with connector and chain, and dated 54/55/56.

RAF Type M2 pressure breathing oxygen mask, unissued, still packed in box in perfect condition.

The Type M oxygen mask was the first purpose built pressure breathing mask developed for use in RAF fast/high altitude jets (the Type J being based on the body of the H mask). The first version was made from blue rubber and featured a simply hook fastening on the right hand side. The M2 was moulded in black rubber and had a more complicated spring clip mechanism for attaching to the helmet. This M2 mask is in absolutely pristine condition; removed from its box only for photographing, it still has all its padding, packing and tags attached. The mask is dated 1959 (repacked in 1961 on the box). It was the forerunner of the Type P and Q masks. A rare mask which had a very short service life.

RAF face-defenders for B helmet/D mask.

"Face-defenders", so-called because they protected the face from "freezer-burn" when coming into contact with the inner press stud fasteners on the B helmet and D mask when flying at high altitudes. These were usually sewn to the edges of the D mask into the appropriate position for a snug fit of the mask. This pair show use but are almost a perfect match - one with clear Air Ministry crown and stores ref. information. Would be the perfect companion for the D mask offered for sale!
