Type A10 CONVERTED oxygen mask
« on: March 12, 2017, 11:05:36 AM »
A not so easily found variant of the A10 mask series . These were a modified version of the A10 mask and were adopted in 1942 under the name Type A10 converted.
The modifications consisted of the 4 retaining straps being discarded and the 2 loops of webbing being used instead fixed onto the mask by meens of a press stud fastening one side and a hook on the other .
The nose and cheek pieces were also removed

I dont have a Type A10 to compare this CONVERTED to ( as of yet !) the mask is not yet in hand, please excuse the images
