Italian Gas Mask

Don't know if this is a field gas mask or for civilian use? hmm  It is definitely wartime as shown by the 1939 date on the filter and the 1940 date on the mask itself. cool  Enjoy!

Re: Italian Gas Mask

Is it marked T-35 on the body?The last bag looks W.W.2. Pouch should be for anti dim compound and extra eye pieces. Rich A. in Pa.

Re: Italian Gas Mask

Thank you for your comments.smile I looked the mask over again for additional markings without success. roll I was expecting the P.C.40 to be the model and the 1941 ink stamp to be an inspection or production date?  cool                                                                                                   Barron

Re: Italian Gas Mask

Hi Rebbaron
your mask is a civilian mask.
PC 40 stand for Popolazione Civile mod 40.
This mask has been made by many factories. I seem to see the SUPERGA mark in your mask.
Here are some pics of pc40 made by PIRELLI with its box and accessories.
