Hi Guys, the respirator was the main peice of anti gas equipment issued but other items were also a very important part of the kit issue.
War gases come in various forms. A lot of gases were designed to react on the skin and cause blisters. Here we have some items which were designed to protect the wearer.
First we have an anti gas hood. This particular one is Canadian issue. It is a treated camo cloth hood impregnated with linseed oil. Care needs to be taken with the storage of these kind of items as they will easily stick together
