Old Diving Mask???????

Anyone know anything about old diving gear?

I found this old mask in my Mothers loft, another interesting item my Father squirreled away before we lost him.

It may not even be a diving mask, but is obviously quite old and Id like to know more about it.

The back is unfortunately very brittle and has split badly, on the inside there is a tube for a mouthpiece.

Any thoughts?

i think it's off a rebreather system, have a look to see if there's an arrow stamped on it, if not i think it's from italy

I'd take a guess at it being a very old version of the CDBA. Not the greatest picture but it looks a bit like one of these:



It's an old pendulum oxygen rebreather used for naval operations, clearing ordnance, sabotage, etc., where lack of bubbles was important.

Not quite the same mask but this is fairly similar:

Thanks Guys.

Now the question is what to do with it.
Despite it's condition it seams a shame to put it back in a box in the loft.

Wonder if it's worth anything?

Responded on SWM.

I'd agree with Lizardland, looks like the old CDBA mask.

Value, if someone needed a new glass it maybe worth a few quid but you'll be lucky to find someone who wants one.

The HDS will know what it is and if it has any worth.
