Mk V GSR & Mk VI Haversack

Here we have a Mk V GSR, or General Service Respirator of the sort used by NZ and Commonwealth forces throughout WW2 and even post war. The mask was made by B.T.R Co in 1942 and the filter is the red Type E Mk. VI (dated 25/11/42) which was the most common of several variants used and it has the older stockinette covered hose. Overall it is in very good used condition, some slight rust around the eyepieces and the elastic is a little stretched but still displays well on a mannequin. The haversack is the MK VI variant made by M&Co 1941 and it is in mint unissued condition, uncut and still retaining the securing string and anti-dimming compound. Please note – due to the filter containing asbestos this mask should not be worn.
