WH (Heer) Gasmask Canister with Straps


WH (Heer) M38 Gasmask Canister (Blechbüchse M38) complete with two set of spare glasses (Klarscheiben) and both the short  and long carrying straps. All German Army personnel were issued with a gasmask, carrying canister and accessories and were required to have it readily available at all times. Fear of the potential use of chemical warfare agents made the gasmask and canister a constant companion of the German soldier through-out the war. This is an empty M38 canister which nicely maker marked and and dated 'ebu 44' indicating production by the company of 'Eckhardt & Co.' from Chotebor. The canister is complete with both the long and short carrying straps. The long carrying strap is nicely maker marked and dated 'ebd 44'. The set is in good untouched and uncleaned condition as found, see photos. Great original late war gasmask canister!
