I'm hoping someone can help identify this oxygen bottle.
I have searched the interweb and cannot find a unit that has an attached regulator and gage like this one.
Thanks in advance
CB

There were two aircraft oxygen bottles that looked the same, the G-1 and the F-1.....both used during WWII. The F-1 is the one you have pictured, where the G-1 was the main aircraft oxygen bottle for all medium to heavy aircraft (C-47, B-24, B-17, B-25 on and on). The F-1 which looks EXACTLY the same was smaller and used in turret applications.

 

Cheers,

Ron

I'm hoping someone can help identify this oxygen bottle.

 

You do have written on your bottle that this is Type F-1.
