The gas mask canister is fine, lets not get picky, I have seen period photo's of the canister on every which way but loose, this is a nice display of a tired dirty soldier out in the field with what he has left on him tryng to survive one more day of the war.
Just going off this picture of a knocked out panzer grenider from fathers 94 div history book where his is on his right hip or side you can see it sticking out in the photo. I kind of added it to the front so it could be seen. timothy
very nice period items and of course well displayed too timothy,i think its a shame when items are hidden from view ,the only way round this would be to have a large enough mirror behind the torso ,thanks for showing
