French Civile 38

The French Civile 38 used a rubber facepiece with a central speech diaphragm.  It was made for civilian and industrial use.  The first example features celluloid eyepieces and was made around 1945.  The second example has glass eyepieces and was made in the 1950s.

Civile = "Civilian"
