WWII ORIGINAL GERMAN DECONTAMINATION GAS MASK CANISTER RARE. DESCRIPTION: Offered to you is this original German WWII Wehrmacht decontamination gas mask canister.
These were issued to the decontamination squads. The decontamination tablets were dissolved in water and the gas mask canister was used as a shower to decontaminate the skin and clothing. Scarce and highly collectable item.
Each soldiers was issued four skin decontamination tablet containers with ten tablets per container, normally Losantin, along with their gasmask and other accessories. The skin decontamination tablets required preparation in water before usage and as a result a new skin decontamination ointment, which didn`t require preparation was introduced to replace the tablets but the changeover was never fully achieved and the tablets continued to be produced and issued until 1944. Decontamination Squads (Entgiftungstrupps) consist of one noncommissioned officer and six privates. The squad is equipped with light protective clothing, gas detectors, and gas warning devices. They are equipped for decontamination of personnel, terrain, weapons, and equipment.German WWII items were destroyed at a great scale after the war by all participating countries.
