WW2 - Equipment & Personal Gear
This is the mask that started it all for full face mask diving and salvage. These saw extensive use during rescue and recovery operations at Pearl Harbor after the attack on Dec. 7th. This is the first version with the very hard to find re-breather bag. The mask has all the fittings and the rubber is still very supple. The only fitting that is missing is the one to attach the re-breather bag to the mask. During operations at Pearl, air hoses were attached to these masks so the divers could stay under for longer periods when time was of the essence. Great piece!!
This is a neat, wood cased 1st Aid Kit with a Snake Bite Kit inside. According to the list on the inside of the lid, there are some items missing, but they shouldn't be to hard to find. What is neat is the Snake Bite Kit, which looks to be full and they are very hard to find. The wood box measures 7 3/4" by 4 3/4" by 2 7/8" and still has the leather handle
This blackout driving lamp is from "Corcoran - Brown" and is a size 4 1/2" and is dated Sep 28, 1944. This style and number fit Jeeps, trucks and other vehicles that took a 4 1/2" front bulb. The lamp is near mint, but the box is a little rough and is dated June 22, 1944. For you vehicle collectors, it should still work.
