World War Two Era Mickey Mouse Gas Mask

23 Jul

Okay, I am officially creeped out. So, I decided to share it with you! Here’s more detail, from: gasmasklexikon:

The Mickey Mouse Gas Mask was produced as part of the war production program. The Sun Rubber Company produced approximately 1,000 Mickey Mouse gas masks and earned an Army-Navy ‘E’ for excellence in wartime production in 1944. Overall, production of the Noncombatant Gas Masks (and in fact, all gas masks) was one of the most successful production programs of the war. In fact, production had to be curtailed early due to the vast quantity produced.
