I have checked inside under visor cover and headliner all I found was FS initial on the foam side of the liner, I would really like to know who's the aviator that wore it.????

that is a very nice flight worn example and the patina is super!
Love that tape job (clearly not commercialy done) ;-)

Im not 100% sure but Im thinking that a MBU 5 might have slipped into the mix of masks for the squadron
if properly set up for Navy comms. There is a good bit of documented Navy use of the 5p during Vietnam and probably beyond.
You need an AM3597C/A amp and the three prong U-75 plug/cord to carry the bulk of that mod.
MBU-5s were unusual, but do fit nicely in the history of Naval Aviation.
Several good photos online of what looks like standard MBU-12s with the amp inline too.

You gonna hunt for a CRU-79 next or just leave it as is? Nice setup, looks good with the green 12P. I need to find one of those amp blocks for a MBU-17 project.

I was going to disagree with the CRU being rare but then saw UK so I can understand it now. I see them over here, not frequently but they pop up ever couple months or so it seems. Now they seem to draw alot of attention and go for pretty good sums. I recall like 10-15 years ago they'd pop up and Id seem them sell for around 50 dollars, sometimes less and sometimes a little more but usually under 100. This was just for the regulator itself, sometimes missing the AN elbow fitting and always no REDAR hose. Usually 80s-early 90s dates.

The Robertshaw 226 model usually comes available on a more regular basis.
Those harder to find are the Firewel or Bendix models.

Always liked Robertshaw items with "Mr Controls" on the tag. The 79s I think I had seen reasonably prices were Bendix and later Litton ones.
