Type H1 BAILOUT BOTTLE
« on: June 18, 2014, 12:51:47 PM »
Well this piece arrived today ! it was a gift from a very very generous member elsewhere.

to say it ticks all the boxes is a slight understatement ,  i had no idea it was going to come with its original issue cardboard box !!!    If you know me , you will understand my "fetish" with issue boxes !!   ;D

The Type H1 bailout bottle , designed to give the operator about 15 secs of oxygen when bailing out at very high altitude

It has fabric straps that can affix it to the operators leg or i have seen them attached to the parachute harness

To note is the nomenclature written on the canvas carrying case ,  US AIRFORCE ,not ARMY AIRFORCE as which is commonly seen on pre 47 AAF items

The tube which coneys the oxygen to the mouth piece is still as supple as the day it was manufactured and the gauge still reads FULL !!! 

I will let the photos do the rest of the talking

Today ,i received a manual called " YOUR BODY IN FLIGHT "  a TO manual No 00-25-13   dated  July 1943 . Inside there is a section on "use of oxygen in parachute jumps "

It makes for some very interesting reading ,thats if you are an aviation nut  like me !! ;D

that's a neat manual LB , I used to have "instructions for the use of Oxygen Equipment for Fighter pilots"
but I sold it about a year ago also had the exact same manual but .."For Aircrews" and it had revisions for bomber crew very interesting read... now don't go reading up and diving off Your roof to see if it works  :)

I was going to suggest you jumped off your roof to try it out...then I remembered you live in a bungalow. Not advisable!  ::)
