Tropical Gas Mask - New Addition

A new addition just arrived today, thought you guys would be interested.
I've been after a nice one of these for as long as i can remember. This is just a sneak peek
i will post more detailed photos when i can big_smile

Little bit rusty but hey roll

It's dated 1940 on the lid for the spare lenses inside the lid, not sure if the Mask inside is the
original to the canister plus the straps don't match in colour?

It's all good and well to sing along when the world goes along with a song, but the man
worth while is the one who can smile when everything goes dead wrong.

Re: Tropical Gas Mask - New Addition

Thanks guys

Yes i fell in love with it also, it's a little ripper and i had to have it no matter what the cost tongueyikesrolllol

Here are a few more detailed photos plus one showing the date (1940) on the lid
for the spare lenses. There is also a name hand written in white on the base but a bit
hard to read & while looking at that picture i also noticed a name scratched into the paint.
If you look closely at this photo you can see it just above the "D" stamp, not sure if it's the
same one that is painted on???

I will show photos of the actual mask at a later date.

Re: Tropical Gas Mask - New Addition

An awesome Tropen painted gas mask container! Love the paint, the name...and the date which makes it early enough to be considered Afrika! Congrats!

Re: Tropical Gas Mask - New Addition

Thanks Wessels,....i have just taken some photos of the actual mask inside & did not notice before.
There is a TP stamp with triangle beside it!!! All parts of the mask are dated 41 the is also a bmw 41 stamp
on the nose section.

The mask is just missing a bottom clip for the right hand side.
