I've never seen one of these before, thanks for showing!
Nice one Dean, good to see you have found another WW1 gas mask for your collection! I still have not spotted any for sale over this side of the pond yet, but you will be the first to know when I do. Leon.

Top buy Dean,100 years young and rare to boot,Leon as you say finding stuff this side is difficult at best,incredible item to own,so well done to you Bud..........
You need to find some chlorine gas, and then you can test the mask to see if it still works!
