In this section we will talk about the documents related with the japanese chemical warfare in ww2.

Japanese Rebreather:
The next photos are about the japanese rebreather in use, it may can be made by  Draeger/Auer. Really hard to find those masks nowadays:


In the next pics we can see three images: 

1. First from left: It is a postcard where we can see 5 model of gas masks used on WW2 by the japanese. A rebreather, an army model 95 or 99, a Type A model 1 civilian version with short filter, dog gas mask and horse gas mask.
2. Middle: It is a photo of a US soldier with a captured japanese gas mask.
3. First from right: It is a moder reprint of a photo about a japanese soldier holding the japanese flag. He is wearing the model 99.

Photo of a japanese soldier in a Anti-Poison training with the full equipment. Special thanks to Jareth H. for this photograph:


PostCard:
Postcard: it is a postcard about the gas trainning, they say:
-Front Guy: We are fine againts gas about the gas masks. 
-Back Guy: We look like a monster squad.

Really Rare Postcard:
I had never seen this model. It is maybe the first japanese gas mask ever made. Thanks to the uniform, we know it is from the 20's. The masks seems to be a version of the ones used in the first world war.

PAPERCRAFT GAS MASK
On 30’s a japanese snack company (MORINAGA) gave some presents with their snacks. One of those presents was this mask. It’s an interesting way to introduce kids into militaria world and a way to teach kids how act in gas attack. At least, in the showdown they would be ”mentally” prepared to act in a gas attack.
