World War I Gas Mask

World War I Gas Mask

Standard issued World War One British gas mask c,1918.
As part of my study into the post-industrial chemical and biological weapons complex in the landscape, I have also been of late collecting items and objects pertaining to it.
I will also be including objects that relate to more recent CBW events like, the Sarin attacks in Tokyo, Anthrax scare in the USA in 2001, Iran-Iraq War, the Syrian Civil War and the Kurdish chemical weapons attacks. Many more  belated posts to come.Off to the U.K.for a week to do more studies in 3 weeks time
