Default Show us your pic.of Luft.pilots with oxygenmask

Hello guys,

I thought it would be nice to start a thread about pictures of Luftwaffe pilots wearing oxygenmasks.

Don't think there are many...or maybe I'm wrong.

I know there aren't many Luft.headgear collectors,but guys....if you have some pics. why not share them with us.

We all know the pics.in Anders Skotte's book about Luft.headgear,but here's one I found in a war-time Luft.propaganda book dated 1940

I've pinned this thread to see what we can get..
I'm also interested and tried this and other questions in the photo section several times with zero result, so in the light of that we can try it here.
Will see if I've a few to share ...

Jos.

Default O2 Masks

Is it ok to discuss O2 Masks in this thread or is it only for Pics?

Yes,good idea

It's not always a picture from which we can learn,any usefull information,questions and tips are welcome !

But also the masks which are offered for sale on E-bay and the other auction and dealersites....just post them here please.

I think that a lot of people (me included ) don't have enough knowledge of these hard-to-get collectorsitems.

Think it's the same with F.J helmets,they are very expensive and people are fooled every day,again and again.
