Here we have a rare and not often seen example of a British Tankers Mask and one of only a few we have ever had in the shop. The mask was designed in WW1 to prevent Splatter, the internal shrapnel that flies around inside a tank, these were not widely produced and were relatively rare even during the war.
The piece is made of steel sheets with eye slits in with a padded leather cover and a chainmail veil made of mild steel. This would be a brilliant addition to any collection of WW1 memorabilia especially with a tank focus. Please note this an authentic piece.The mask is 5.5 inches wide (14cm). There is some wear to the leather and the cord and rust on the chainmail. The item "WW1 British Tankers Mask" is in sale since Friday, February 15, 2019.
