    WWII Oxygen Regulators MKV III. How many types

    Can anyone educate me as to the different type of MKV III Regulators there were
    As far as I know there were MK V IIIA's B's C's and D's. What were the differences between each type. Were some used on heavy aircraft only such as bombers and others on fighters ?
    Every time I see one for sale its listed as Spitfire etc although I've seen different types with the 'Spitfire label'
    Any help out there?

        I have a 1936 dated Type A and then a 1939 Type A although this has got a repro label. I'm trying to work out if the repro is correct in that the gauge is a Type A ?
        First 3 pics are the 1936 gauge. This has a part number ref 4248 whilst the 1939 one is 107436

          Mk.VIII Ref 6A/102, Mk.VIIIA 6A/124, Mk.VIIIB 6A/476, Mk.VIIIC 6A/513, Mk.VIIID 6A/525
          But the one shown above, like yours, appears to be a replica and perhaps suspect as to its accuracy. I suspect the VIIIB and VIIID shouldn't have the right hand "Contents" gauge.

            Here are examples of...

            Mk VIII A 6D/124,it has been modified to Mk VIIIB 6D/476 , believed to be ex DAP Beaufort. The white face is corrosion ....the black face is painted.

            Mk VIII C 6D/744 believed to be ex Spitfire Mk VIII.

            Cheers Mike

              Just thought you might like to see this example of a Mk VIII regulator. It came from a crash recovered Battle of Britain Hurricane.
              The maker looks like its SS&S, there is something just below this, but due to the impact damage i can't make it out.

                FlyingBlind,
                Yes it would seem that your "repro" regulator is probably a type A, that has been faked up with a new label.

                It seems the type B and D did not have quantity gauges.
