    Default MKIV Respirator with early filter

    Hi, I just bought this 1940 dated respirator to go with my collection of Home Front Observer Corps items. I think it is a MKIV as I cannot see the microphone socket and it has the early khaki painted filter. If I'm wrong please correct me as gas masks are not my speciality!! Leon.

    Hi Jake, I did not get this one off the bay, it was on a dealers site (CS MILITARIA). As it was a nice early one I was prepared to pay a little more than the average and it has the owners details with it. Leon.

    That is a great one and looks like the hose and mask have not suffered from time at all.
    Nice addition. Congrats
