Common Manufacturer Stamps The complexity of military respirators means that components were often made by a variety of manufacturers, making it very hard to date a respirator accurately. For example, a facepiece may be from a batch produced in one year, with the filter being made in another year. It is not uncommon for respirators to have multiple year dates due to the scale of production. Here are some of the main makers’ stamps that can be found on most British military respirators. There are countless more (especially when all those produced by the Commonwealth countries or Lend-Lease versions are taken into account), but those listed here provided the majority for the British forces across the two world wars: Avon Avon has been making respirators since 1920 and is a well-respected make.

Another cause for concern was the possible use of hydrocyanic acid, although this gas was considered too light to be used on the battlefield as it would dissipate too quickly. The fear that phosgene would be used took precedence, the main concern being that the current Smoke Helmet offered no protection at all from this gas. Various experiments were carried out in the Anti-Gas Department Laboratories until it was discovered that sodium phenate would offer ample protection against both phosgene and hydrogen cyanide.

This book aims to tell the facts. The information in this guide has been translated from technical manuals, training pamphlets and research through the National Archives. As well as giving a brief history of the use of gas in warfare, we have also targeted topics such as care and maintenance in order to help collectors preserve their collections.
