Sleeve, Gas Detector, 1941

€385.00

Rare and nice genuine WWII British sleeve gas detector, issued to airborne troops and first-wave units of the amphibious landings on D-Day.

This brown paper armband was impregnated with a chemical reagent intended for alerting its wearer in the case of a gas attack otherwise undetectable. This type was massively used by the US Army.

The present detector, manufactured in May 1941, is in good overall condition.
