Credit line
Gas masks like this one were issued to the first three echelons of the 2 NZEF in 1940. The history of this particular example is unknown but it marked as being issued in 1941. This type of gas mask was used by naval and air personnel, and can be distinguished from similar models because of its extra long hose to make it useful for naval personnel.
