All-does anyone have information regarding the metal tags located in this A-11 rear goggle strap and oxygen mask?  Numbers match. Armory tags?  Auction/surplus?There is an example in Prodger’s book and I’ve seen a few elsewhere.  Also-yellow paint on the studs..and while I’m thinking of it—clips for mask reversed left and right. I’m pretty good with RAF type C’s but hoping to learn more about these.

Okay-awesome. Have you had any luck backtracking that number to specifically identify your pilot?  If so-what tools are you using?  I’ve not been involved with AAF or USAF research up to now.

no I haven’t yet, I’m not very well informed as to the best research methods for identifying AAF personnel. Other members who specialise in that kind of research have been very helpful to me when I asked for assistance
