Nigel,

Thyanks for the compliments.  Are you looking for one of the MSA masks?  The pop up here now and then.  If you want me to keep the old eyes and ears open for one, I'd be happy to.  Also on the GP&R Canadian O mask what you see is actually a clear plastic disk not metal, it has just "yellowed" with age somewhat.  And it most definitely is a valve/vent.  That entire rig, Canadian B helmet, O mask and MkVIII goggles all belonged to a good friend of mine, Mr. Donald Vickers, RCAF.  Don passed away, will be three years in July and he was quite a character.  His WWII career was varied, he was an Instructor at AOS #8 in Quebec, then flew with Coastal Command, flying Cansoes, and ended the war flying with Ferry Command.

Smitty,

Thanks for the compliments.  Next time you are up here in the Nor'East, let me know and plan some time to knock back a few in the "O" Club.


Hi.  I am new to the forum and stumbled across this thread.  Very nice display of headgear!  I am especially interested in your GP&R mask.  I just recently picked up a minty mask very similar to yours.  Mine is 99% complete, but is missing the yellow vent/valve on the right hand side.  Just wondering if you can give me some more information the valve/vent on your helmet that might be useful in helping me track down a similar piece for my own mask.  Is there any part number on it?  Can you please post a couple of close-up pictures? 

Thanks!

Craig

Please excuse the late reply to this thread as I am still finding my way round the forum.

Superb display Paul, that`s one hell of a collection of caps and headgear, seriously impressive, I definitely need a bigger room. :P

I used to have two RAF air rank caps but sold them both many years ago, I bitterly regret it and would love to get another.
I don`t care to belong to the sort of club that accepts people like me as members.

Oh wow,
Really impressed with the collection.

Is that a RAF scramble bell?
