You can help Gas Mask and Respirator Wiki by expanding it and adding more information to it.
The German Lederschutzmaske (leather protection mask) was introduced in 1917 to combat chemical weapons used by both sides in WW1. It replaced the GM-15 mask.
The mask is made of tanned sheepskin (due to rubber shortage) and is dipped in an oil sealant and has a grey filter (which contains asbestos). The celluloid lenses have a strange inner frame. It has a 6 point head harness.
