WWII British Civil Defence Gas Mask Respirator ARP Police 1940 Home Front

WWII British Civil Defence Gas Mask

Good example of  a WWII British Civil Defence gas mask / respirator as used by all  Civil Defence sectors including ARP, Civilian Duty, Police etc. There are a few scuffs, as would be expected given the age of this item, and, as it has been in storage for many years it could do with a good clean. We’ve left it as it is because the dust is part of its history! WWII British Civil Defence Gas Mask

The mask comes complete with its original hessian bag, which still has its drawstring and carrying loop attached. It looks as though there may be a blood stain on the top of the bag, but let’s not get morbid, perhaps it’s something far less sinister …WWII British Civil Defence Gas Mask

Ideal for a Home Front display, Re-enactment, Living History Group and/or a conversational piece to display at home.
