WW1 BRITISH SMALL BOX RESPIRATOR
A truly stunning condition British Small Box Respirator (SBR). Face mask is supple and completely undamaged. Head straps are all present and in matching undamaged condition. (With the passage of time the elastication in the bands has weakened.). Eye pieces / lens clear and in keeping with the rest of the mask. The hose is sadly age hardened. Filter canister is of British manufacture and is complete, being rust and damage free. The correct spacer ‘spring’ is contained below the filter canister in the carry bag. Face mask is with clear size (3) details, to centre front of mask.
Carry bag is in matching clean damage free condition showing clear maker and date details, with WD broad arrow to inner opening flap.
Bag is with original brass chest tie loops and its original tie cord.
The condition of this item would be hard to better, this being the best condition mask of its type that I have ever been able to offer for sale.
Any potential buyer already owning a SBR wishing to upgrade their own mask are welcome to use there own mask as part exchange if desired.
