Bulgarian Противогаз ПДЕ-1

The Bulgarian Противогаз ПДЕ-1 was one of the many copies of the U.S. ABC-M17 Field Protective Gas Mask.  Nearly identical to the Czech M-10, one notable difference (other than the color) was the use of a five point head harness instead of six.  This example was made in 1981.

Противогаз ПДЕ = "Gas Mask PDE"
