    Hi, the mask looks like the wartime T35. There seem to be various styles of bag for these.

    Compare to some seen here:

    The Collector's Guild

    Looks like a date on the paper label stuck on the filter. Some mention of these being Spanish made here, I cannot comment:

    The bag does not look like any of mine. Mask looks good. I think my filters are a browner colour.Does the mess tin have loops on the front? Does the little spout stopper come off? If it does it is W.W.2 tropical. Rich A. in Pa.

    The stopper is non removing on this one. I checked the Guild, they had an identical mask....same carrier, mask and filter. Not sure if markings on filter are date marks, roman numerals don't fit in....?

    The guild listed the sticker on the filter as an inventory date done by the italians. So post war sticker on war time filter?

    The canteen is post war. Tin is W.W.2. I'll look for one of my Italian masks/bags and do a pic. Rich A. in Pa.

    The mess kit is Italian in origin, but may have been used by another nation. "H" isn't a letter commonly used in the Italian language.
