Spanish Máscara Antigas DAGSA

The Spanish Máscara Antigas DAGSA was very similar to the German Gasmaske 201.  It was designed by Artillery Captain Antonio Blanco Garcia during the Spanish Civil War.  The first two examples shown are equipped with C.M.P. filters, and the third example is equipped with a Drager-Blanco filter.  These masks were made by Defensa Anti Gas Sociedad Anónima around 1936.

Máscara Antigas = "Gas Mask"

Defensa Anti Gas Sociedad Anónima = "Anti Gas Defense Corporation"

C.M.P. = Constructora de Material de Protección = "Construction Material Protection"

 

Similar masks in my collection:  Spanish Artilleria, German GM 235, German GTG
