    Hello Buzzard,
    Do you have any indication of what time period it was in use?

    Martin, have a look about 1/3 of the way down this page. There is a Mk X described and illustrated, stated to be a Lancaster item, perhaps this will help.

    I doubt that any particular mark of oxygen regulator would be restricted to a specific type of aircraft, although only aircraft with oxygen systems would not such a thing - forget Austers, Tiger Moths, Oxfords and Harvards! I imagine that there would be an RAF Air Publication (AP) that would have details of all standard items of oxygen equipment, and how it should be used and maintained, and this might give some guidance, but if it was an item intended for widespread use in the RAF it may well have been applicable to most types requiring an oxygen system. The RAF Museum (and other museums with an interest in the RAF) should have copies of RAF AP's and be able to guide you to locate the one containing information this type of information, but like so many items of equipment fitted to aircraft (such as engines, armament, radio and radar, all types of electrical equipment) it is most likely that it will be intended for fitment to a wide range of front-line aircraft.
