Tin, Anti-Gas Ointment, No. 6, For Tropical Use


Genuine post-WWII British tin, Anti-Gas Ointment No. 6, intended for tropical use. The cream contained in each tube could either be applied before or after exposure to mustard gas vapour, thus preventing or lessening the severity of burns. This type of tin was generally carried into the gas mask pouch.

The present tin is full and retains its eight original tubes.
