Gas hood, 1915 (c)

The introduction of gas warfare in 1915 created an urgent need for protective equipment to counter its effects. Accordingly, the British Army soon developed a range of gas helmets based on fabric bags and hoods that had been treated with anti-gas chemicals. These were later replaced by the small box filter respirator which provided greater protection.
