Heer M38 Gasmask & Canister

Heer M38 Gasmask & Canister


With the development of poisonous gasses used as offensive weapons in WWI appropriate defensive gasmasks also had to be developed. The German WWI M1915 and M1917 gasmasks evolved into the Reichswehr era M24 gasmask and eventually into the M30 and M38 gasmasks used in WWII. All German Army personnel were issued with a gasmask, carrying canister and accessories and were required to have it readily available at all times.


M38 pattern rubber gas mask. Mask is complete with all straps. Included is an FE 41 filter. The mask comes housed in a second pattern M38 corrugated magnetic sheet metal construction canister. Canister retains most of its original fieldgrey paint. Canister is marked "D" on the bottom for waterproof. Also the canister is complete with retaining spring and carrying straps.


All in all very good condition with signs of age.
