Mask, Gas, British, 1943-1944
Genuine WWII British gas mask in its original canvas case. Mainly issued to first wave assault troops and airborne units because of its compact design. Mask is complete and dated 1944.
The carrying case, dated 1943, has no hooks at the rear; the inner side of the flap features the CF stamp under the Crown of Denmark, thus providing evidence of its reassigment to the Danish Civil Defense (Civilforsvaret) after the war.
This nice set is in excellent condition.
