WW2 Gas Brassard - 1940 Dated
£195.00 Sold out
An original WW2 gas brassard dated 1940.
These were issued to all assault troops on D-Day because the Allies were convinced that the Germans may use Chemical weapons to defend the French coast.
The overall condition of this example is very good, it has the fold marks from where it has been folded in a gas mask bag. The purple ink maker and date stamp is present but slightly blurry which is common because of the type of paper used.
An iconic D-Day item...
