    Not just Avon made this pattern of mask, other companies included Siebe Gorman, Leyland and a few others I can't remember. This type of mask was originally intended for use by the armed forces, however it did find itself being issued and used back on the home front during the war alongside the Civilian Duty Respirator.

    Thanks

    Yes indeed. The service respirator has a much larger canister than the civil types, allowing for longer exposure to gas.

    'Personal Protection Against Gas' (HMSO 1938) says 'The service respirator is the pattern issued to the fighting services. It will also be provided for members of certain Civil ARP services whose duties might involve their remaining and working in high concentrations of gas. These include Police, first aid parties and decontamination squads'.

    Yes it is. Your gasmask is the type used by British soldiers in WW2.

    The service type respirators all have the same filter (except for some used for industrial purposes). What I was saying is that the service respirator (the type you have) has a larger filter than civillian types of gasmask, which are not of the service type. This larger capacity filter meant that service resperators were sometimes used by civillians who might require a larger capacity filter. Sorry if I confused you.

    i just asked because you said this:''The service respirator has a much larger canister than the civil types, allowing for longer exposure to gas''. Thanks again for your time and help

ID:	492436Yeahhhh!!!! mates.It is here.My mark V arrived yesterday.The filter is dates 4/41,the mask itself 1940 ,exel valve 1940 and the head harness 5/41, anti dimming stick 5/40 and the antigas ointment no2 it is very nice too.I have a couple of thinks that i worry about: the crowsfoot at the exel valve looks like it isn't complete,such a triangle /\ and the rubber facepiece hasn't a crowsfoot.[i think that the crowsfoot at the nose piece has fainted] Any opinions will be welcome and and very usefull
