Tropical gas mask tin and straps

PostPosted: Today at 17:52 (2017)    Post subject: Gas mask tin and straps    Reply with quote Edit/Delete this post Delete this post
Looking for help here from any experts as I can't seem to find the answer through searching books on the subject.I am looking for a set of gas mask straps to go with a tin but am unsure exactly what I am looking for with regard to these (never having bought any before).

The tropical gas mask canister- does it have specialist straps, or are they just ordinary/Wehrmacht straps? We're cans made specially for the Afrikakorps/tropical theatre? Are there any makers marks that I should be looking for? Is there any advice you can give so I don't end up buying some reproduction straps?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Tropical gas mask tin and straps

Hello and welcome to the forum. All canisters had  webbed straps. No special version for tropical regions.
Here are several posted and you can see what to look for:
