A good example of the British General Civilian Respirator as designed in the mid to late 1930s and issued to civilians at the outbreak of war.
This example is maker marked and dated 1937, complete with its issue box and care instructions leaflet. The box is a little foxed and battered, whilst the leaflet has suffered similarly. The carrying lace for the box has broken and been repaired at some point. The mask itself is in largely good shape, with some minor wear to the rubber in places and some rust damage to the buckle as pictured.
The set is named to Frank Robinson, a schoolboy in Penrith.
