Sample text

This book is primarily focused on British military equipment, although there is also a huge collectors’ scene for the civilian assortments of respirators issued. As well as the British varieties, there are also avid collectors of military and civilian respirators used by other countries, whether they are from the two world wars or the modern day. Many of the points covered in this guide can also be applied to collecting these respirator types. The main personal interest of the authors has always been the kit and equipment used by the British, who, during these two major conflicts, helped to lead the war in developing anti-gas measures.

It helps to preserve them long-term. • Do keep matching respirators and haversacks together, especially those with matching issue numbers. • Do check respirator features carefully. There are quite a few Czechoslovakian masks that resemble British MK IV types. • Don’t be taken in by the so-called ‘Lightweight Respirator Prototypes’. They are usually post-war civilian industrial masks. The head harness straps are usually the giveaway. • Don’t try respirators on. Remember that it is not just the risk of exposure to old filter chemicals, but years’ worth of dust may also have collected in breather tubes.

The ideal design for a military respirator must satisfy a number of conditions. It must not be restrictive to the soldier, it must be easy to breathe through and also be comfortable to wear for long periods during a chemical attack. When used in the field, military respirators must also be able to integrate and be fully compatible with the rest of the kit a soldier carries. Achieving such a design has taken many years of research, which still continues today as new equipment and chemical threats continue to appear.
