The Small Box Respirator was a British manufactured mask, designed and entering service in 1916.[1] It was a vast improvement from the PH Hood, as it used a hose and external filter design.

The mask was used by many members of the Entente. Its filter was capable of filtering out every German chemical agent used in the war, however it had shortcomings, including hte fact how one could not inhale through the nose.
