    S10 Gas mask Question

    Forum members, I have an S10 gas mask that I purchased quite reasonably before they went crazy on eBay....However I don't believe it came with a British made filter...I know any NATO/civilian type filter will suffice, but I wouldn't mind having an original....This and I was wondering if replacement head harnesses can be bought, as mine appears oxidized....Any help appreciated, Bodes

      Here's a picture of one off the internet, with what I believe is a standard British filter....Bodes

        That is the correct filter for S10, although S6 will also fit (we used up the old stock first before the new ones came through). S6 filters were thinner, black metal and had a perforated outer rim. You say the harness is 'oxidised', it is rubber so shouldn't oxidise?

          It's called Blooming...Typically, this is caused by unused vulcanizing agent(s) migrating to the surface of the rubber part......Bodes
