Type A13 demand pressure oxygen mask
« on: June 25, 2017, 09:38:08 AM »
A fairly scarce mask for collectors . The A13 and A13a  were developed for very high altitude flight  ,above 10,000 metres . First issued in January  the A13 was first used over Berlin in Febuary 1944 by the 14th PRU . The A13 was only produced between January and and August of 1944 

In researching this mask , i have read that the A13 was only issued with BLACK webbing straps, the example i have shown shows OD straps ??

2017 and STILL WANTED! a pair of RAF 1940 Patt boots
