    Hello Adrian & Luis,
    In this case i'm afraid the number 225 is not the roll number given to each soldier in his unit. Gasmask sets were not like the vast majority of the other equipments that was issued at the clothing depot. They did belong to the unit, and the number is the issueing number. It means that your set Luis was the 225th issued within the 10. Kompanie of Luftnachrichten-Regiment 42...
    Also...sorry for the bad news, but your carrying strap is postwar Bundeswehr...
    thanks
    JPhillip,
    Thanks for the info every day I learn something new that makes this hobby more interesting. Carrying strap defenetly post war the guy send it to me separetly as an extra bonus..Unfortunately this seller was pulled out of Ebay, he was one of the best sellers of militaria.I believe he got in trouble for selling original nazi newspapers..

    100% Correct

    Why do I always miss these threads? Its a great example though, even better that you've managed to find out information about where it came from and who it originally belonged to

    Thanks for showing
