Excuse my ignorance on this subject, were the bottles already fitted with a mask or would the crew have been wearing a mask with a detachable oxygen coupling or similar.........if that makes any sense?

Nice item, i`ve never seen one before, although i`m pretty clueless about USAAF kit.

I do have the two RAF versions, the early one in the canvas bag and the later one with the clip.
I don`t care to belong to the sort of club that accepts people like me as members.
