Anti-Gas Measures

Chemical weapons were first introduced to contemporary warfare during the Battle of Ypres in 1915. Since poisonous gas had never been deployed at such a large-scale, soldiers on the front lines were initially unprepared. Pamphlets such as this one offered soldiers instructions on how to use the respirator and helmet, as well as breathing exercises and disinfections methods.
