    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.

    You need to find some chlorine gas, and then you can test the mask to see if it still works!

    But don't forget to piddle on it first, as was the oft recorded method with this type, hence the unmistakable bouqet that is apparent everytime you put it on in the privacy of your own home......One hundred year old urine.
