    1925 Naval Pattern Gas Mask

    Post by ypres on Tue Jun 30, 2015 4:36 pm

    Going through some items I came across this gas mask. I thought some members may find it of interest. These are seldom seen. Unfortunately the mask and hose are stiff. Carrier would be worn around the waist with the mask on the left side of the body. The second strap would be worn over the opposite shoulder across the chest and back. I believe this mask is the Mk II Navy ?
