    the anti fog grease is still in the tin...and it also is responsible for taking the paint off the canister..it was wrapped in a plastic bag and has sweated out of the cap coated the canister and caused the paint to lift....

    As has already been said, its a MkV General Service Respirator. This type was standard issue within the British Armed Forces during the Second World War. Avon has manufactured the gas masks used by the British Armed Forces up until the recent introduction of the Scott GSR, along with respiratory protection Avon make all things from car tyres to cow milking machine components

    Thanks
