143) A good original early war British civilian gas mask and issue box. The mask is in good order just dirty with age. the rubber is excellent soft and supple and a good wash or wipe over will bring it up like new. the see through screen is again excellent. the head-straps are good and show it as a less common size large. it is marked with the owners name and the same name as the box so have always been together. the filter is all in good order. the rubber dates it to 1938. the box is good and strong but does show age related marks and stains. it is named to the top and has his full name and address to the base.
