    I got this mask a couple years back from my neighbour who bought it at a military airfield right after the war, and it has most likely been used in the 331-332 R.A.F (Norwegian) squadron, and I would like some information about it and possibly what it is worth(I'm not selling it btw).

    The mask is a G Type , designed in 1941 , production began the following year, in limited numbers , full production soon followed , April 1943 saw 13000 produced in April alone. Theyre not a rare mask ,I would even say out of all the wartime types they are the ones most commonly encountered. I have two of them. Cant help you with any info on the Sqdns you mentioned Im afraid , Regards , Cris S.
