Ever wonder what a WWII personal chemical shelter looks like?


Recommended Posts

Cool! If I saw this at an estate sale, I would have never guessed what it was. Are you just supposed to put it over your head and hope for the best?

Back when Army Surplus was WW2 and Korea gear my friends and I picked some up at our favoriate surplus guy at the flea market. We used them once when it was raining at scout camp. Pretty cool item then.

How horrific. I'm glad these never had to be used.

Freshly packed, good-to-go GIs, brought to you exclusively by Wal-Mart! ( The hard part is folding it up into that tight little block again!) :D
