French Type Civile 38

The French Type Civile 38 used a cloth facepiece similar to the A.R.S. - G.E.P. and A.N.P. T-31.  It was made for civilian use, and would be carried in a tall metal or papier-mâché tube.  The first set of pictures features a standard Poelman filter, while the second set boasts a bakelite filter made by Matériel de Protection Aerienne.  Both of these examples were made in 1939.

Type Civile = "Civilian Type"

Matériel de Protection Aerienne = "Aerienne Protective Equipment"
