WW2 - Equipment & Personal Gear
I have two of these for sale and both are in excellent condition and look unissued. Rubber is still supple in mask and hose. Both masks have the fiberboard mask stiffeners for shipping present' They are both dated 1942. While they are both in near mint condition, one of them has some very slight fraying/wrinkling in one of the straps, I'll let that one go for $140. I do not have bags for these masks, so it's just the masks for sale. They are hard to come by in any condition, these would be hard to upgrade. UPDATE: The $150 mask has been sold!!
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.
