    A friend who knows I'm a militaria collector gave these to me. Anyone have any details on these two items?

    The first one is a US Navy Emergency Survival Hat-Headnet. A rather goofy looking thing. It was part of a Naval Aircrew Emergency kit that was issued to US Navy and Marine Pilots and aviation personnel in the Pacific Theater.

    Second one is just what it says. It is a large gas sheet/vinyl bag with one end made of clear plastic to see though. It was to be worn in the case of a blistering agent gas attack.

    Thanks Dale, is the gas protective cover Canadian or American?

    Gas Cover

    The Gas Cover is American. Take note of the markings, that is one clue that it is American.
