The Evolution of the Japanese Army Gas Mask (1918-1945)

Article about: The Evolution of the Japanese Army Gas Mask (1918-1945) I have been absent for the last few days with good reason. It is time to release several best kept wartime secrets, so please don't in

    I have never read anything worthwhile written about Japanese Gas Masks, so I had long hoped to finish this work. Now it's off my chest and I can relax.

    I hope this broke enough fresh ground for everyone.

    Great information on a subject often left in the dark and barely explored! I especially like the information regarding the Amphibious variants! Well Done Nick!!

    Before writing this, I was not aware that there were special observer versions for the Type 95 and Type 99 gas masks and that I had the rare observer version anti-fogging lens in my collection. But I have not yet seen any mask with an observer's eyepiece. So if anyone has an observer's gas mask, please kindly upload a photo of the eyepiece here.

    The Chemical Warfare Defense Manual I touched upon in post 15 was issued a few months later in miniature 214-page booklet form on 10th May 1937 and distributed widely. Here's a copy I just picked up.
