RAF D-Type Oxygen Mask
RAF 'Original' D-Type Cloth Oxygen Mask, Microphone, Earphones & Loom.

This D-Type Oxygen Mask is fitted with a Type 21 (wired) Microphone, Air Ministry Ref. No. 10A/11994.
This is fixed to a nice early type wiring Loom, Ref. 10A/10353 and Jack plug, 10A/10991.

The Ear Receivers are the correct one's for the D-Type, Ref. No. 10A/7063.

This Cloth D-Type Oxygen Mask looks to be in an un-issued condition, as the inside chamois leather is very clean.
On this is found a wartime 'round' AID quality inspection stamp (see image).

The outside 'Melton Wool' fabric has some issues with moth damage, probably happening during storage.
Most surviving cloth D-Masks suffer from some form of moth damage.

The bag has stitched-on, Air Ministry stamped, Helmet attachment strips on either side.
It has a front microphone housing ring Ref. No. 6D/117.

D-Type Oxygen Masks rarely come up for sale in any condition, and this one is a good and complete example.
