    A good luftschutz canister. The straps look period but directly sewn on the loops is odd ... maybe replaced?

    many thanks for that, I did wonder if the top strap should have had the button type attachment, so this would be for civil defence use rather than military ? ,

    Hello,
    The sewn strap is rather the norm for the Luftschutz...
    Thanks

    Hello John,
    In my opinion, if you want only one canister that will be representative of german gasmask carriers, you should get an army one instead of a Luftschutz example.
    Thanks
