The ARS was the second french army gas mask during the First World War.
Mask overview Edit
The mask is made of rubberized canvas and is held onto the face with a 7-points head harness. The intake-outtake is at the bottom, it is a circular metal piece with a hole in the middle for the filter and a small hole under it for exhalation. The eyepieces are made of celluloid.
The filter was a simple cylinder filled with activated charcoal. The bottom had multiple holes to allow air in and a 42 mm thread at the top to be screwed onto the mask.
The mask and the filter came in a tube with two straps complete with instructions on the bottom of the lid.
