10 A nice and now extremely hard to find British army early war service respirator. This is the early stockinet covered rubber type with khaki coloured filter and comes complete with correct early MKV haversack. The mask is outwardly excellent, the metalwork is dated 1939 the head strap is dated 1/40. The internal rubber is all in good order but does show very slight surface cracking to the edges in places but all is good and strong. the main hose is excellent and the filter is dated 1939 and of the nice early fawn colour as opposed to the later red filter. The haversack is in good order but shows dirt and marks, it is the correct MKV and dated 1939. AS WITH ALL VINTAGE RESPIRATORS THIS IS SOLD PURELY FOR HANDLING AND DISPLAY AND IS NOT SAFE TO USE.
