Davis Type M-2 Gas Mask (green)
This Davis Emergency Equipment Company Type M-2 Gas Mask used a green molded rubber facepiece similar in appearance to the U.S. M4-10A1-6 Lightweight Service Gas Mask. It featured a Yablick exhale valve, and flat eyepieces. It was stored in a metal box with a Davis name plate on the front, and instructions for use on the inside cover. This example was made in 1942
