    Hi, guys. I'm going to piggy-back on this thread as I also have a gas mask that I know nothing about. Purchased at a flea market for ten euros for both pieces. If more photos needed, let me know. I didn't think I would be posting this but might as well.

    I agree tht the mask itself is what is called a radio operators mask....the attachment on the side was used to connect a cable to continue using a radio while the gas mask was worn

    Your gas mask appears to be a normal issue Whermacht gas mask made of a canvas material....more pics would be great!

    Correctamundo .... the opening was to attach the microphone to. Some say these were Kriegsmarine issue???
    Either way, the mask was a preparitory measure than thankfully was not needed. I wonder how many soldiers grumbled about having to carry around this clanking piece of useless kit on their backs?
