Info needed on GP&R Ltd. oxygen mask hoses
« on: September 29, 2018, 12:05:02 AM »
   
      Hello to those in the group. I am a new member in to the Allied Forum from the US (Pacific Northwest) and this is my first post.
      The US military forums I belong to don't really discuss "other" allied flight gear, really glad I found this forum.

      I recently acquired a US type "C" oxygen mask with MK III re-breather and these 3 black oxygen mask hoses were included.
      Cleaned one up and noticed  the end of the hose is marked    GP&R Ltd.  Canada  CL 1943   60/142
   Initial research indicates that these may be used with something called a Gutta Percha oxygen mask.  Can someone educate me about these masks and if these hoses are correct for them ?  Any info appreciated,  c7zx.

c7zx,

Here are some photos of the RCAF gutta percha oxygen mask that I have.  The entire rig belonged to a friend of mine who was an RCAF WW II pilot.  This mask I believe was a rebreather system much like the US Navy MSA oxygen masks.  This is evidenced by the rebreather canister attached to the opposite end of the hose. These masks are fairly scarce.  I do believe your hose in question is for this oxygen mask.  It's the same color and is longer than other US or RAF oxygen mask hoses.  I just can't confirm for you 100%, as where the marking would be they are obscured by attachment cord or strapping.  However and again I do believe your hose is for this RCAF oxygen mask.  Of the RCAF masks that I have seen or handled I would guess that 75% do not have the hose attached.  Thus making yours a fairly desirable commodity to someone looking to complete the mask they have.  Hope this helps.
Paul
