RAF helmet/oxygen mask attachment hook.

 

Another illusive accessory. The hook that mounts to the helmet (Types C, D or E) for correct fitting of the Types E*, G or H oxygen  mask. This is the correct RAF pattern (not the US style, which will work, but is not technically correct). A very small quantity available - when they're gone, they're gone.

RAF Type D oxygen mask blanking cap.

Scarce chamois covered alloy cap with hinges to attached to the front of the Type D oxygen mask. This was used when the mask was worn for oxygen only, without communications. A hard-to-find accessory.

RAF face defenders for Type B helmet / Type D oxygen mask.

Good original set of face defenders, as issued with the Type B flying helmet, to prevent the wearer getting a "freeze burn" from the bare metal fasteners mounted on each side. These were usually sewn to the sides of the Type D oxygen mask to enable it to be worn with the Type B helmet. Webbing tapes with chamois backing. Show light use but great condition.

Vietnam era USAF MS22001 pressure breathing oxygen mask.

 

This pattern began its service life in WWII as the A-13A pressure demand mask, and remained in use until the1990s, redesignated as MS22001 c.1950. This is an example from the Vietnam war era. Made by Acushnet, who made far fewer than MSA, the mask is in good condition. The rubber is pliable, with no signs of perishing. There is a small nick in the folded down facial seal and the integral strap that fits under the nose has separated, as is common. The exoskeletal stiffener has had the two outer edges removed (this may have been deliberate?) however it wouldn't affect the functionality of the mask. Unusually it has been fitted with a full head harness, intended for wear with a headset rather than a helmet - so perhaps for a heavy bomber or reconnaissance aircraft (maybe a B-52?). Covers for the valves are missing but replacements can be found.  Microphone installed. Good hose and connector. Overall a great display piece for any Vietnam aviation display. Moulded date of 1969. Quite a scarce mask, especially from this maker and in this configuration.

Luftwaffe oxygen mask connector and clothing clip by Auer.

Rare original end connector and clothing clip for a Luftwaffe oxygen mask, by Auer. This type would fit any WWII Luftwaffe oxygen mask, including the 10-69, 10-67, 10-6701 and 10-6702. Retrieved from a relic mask, a small piece of the clip has broken away but this does not affect the operation of the clip, which 

operates perfectly and has a good solid working spring. The clip does not rotate on the shaft of the connector because the "U" clip has fused to the tube.  Clip is marked AB (the code for Auer). For any mask missing its connector this would improve the appearance and authenticity 100%. An extremely rare accessory.

WWII RAF gauze screen for the Type 25 / 26 microphone as fitted in the Type E, E* and G oxygen mask. Stores ref. 10A/12925.

 

This simple gauze screen was an afterthought to prevent moisture (spit) from getting into the microphone and shorting it out. Aluminium frame and dine wire gauze mesh. Each is stamped with the stores ref. no 10A/12925 (stamping is clearer on some than others and one is worn away). Five available.
