Nice pick-up Carl. The rubber looks to still be quite flexible?

Finally got this one in hand today . The rubber is in great shape with just a little cleaning to do . The "juliet" harness is nicely stamped which is a bonus

Piccys to follow soon  :)

Here it is , finally in hand displayed on a head form . After a little reading on the A9 mask . It was a short lived item ,only produced between 42 -43 and was designed to be used with the A12 regulator which was able to mix the surrounding air with pure oxygen according to altitude and also the requirements of the user .

The "Juliet" harness allowed it to be worn without the need for a flying helmet .

The hose unfortunately is missing , but i hope to have that remedied  very soon
