WW2 Gas Brassard
An original WW2 gas brassard.
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 almost unreadable in most light which is common because of the type of paper used. There is one small tear as seen in the picture.
An iconic D-Day item...
