It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
That could probably tell a tail or two....
Alright, I'm going!
Very nice rare item. I believe they were available for 'civilian' dogs as well as dogs used in the military (although when you think about it they were only of use to messagener dogs because they couldn't sniff out mines or bite anybody whilst wearing one!)
Dogs were widely used during the war for a variety of tasks, including sentry animals-horses also had gas masks and of course even those horrific baby pattern units-any one or thing of value needed to be protected from the rain of gas weapons that had been considered likely to start raining down on the forces and population from day 1 of a general war in 1939.
Thank you for your comments Guys!!!
Dog on it Dean you come across some interesting items it would be good to be able to compliment your thread with a couple of period images.
Some were I vaguely remember seeing an instruction book for the proper application of these types of masks I just can't remember if it was on line or were it was if I come upon it I will add it to the thread.
Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.
Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
