Hi Arthur,
Are there any markings on the gas cape label? (Sometimes if you back light it with a strong light source it helps see a faded mark).

Nice thrad I wouldn't expect this much of variety. My contribution, an early rubberized tan one, sorrily only the bag without the cape. Anyway I think it's one of the rarer ones.
I cannot read the markings, only "TP" is visible for Tropen.

@J. Csernus: Thanks, that is indeed a rare variety bag. Thanks for adding it to the thread.

@Arthur Kullmer: Another excellent example, unfortunately I can't help with the dating. It has the characteristics of an early war version but no doubt the moment I post this comment, someone will post a green one dated 1945!

Regards

Ian

This morning I found on another forum a question about a gascape

and it turns out to be very interesting, and answering some questions about the maker mark C.P. in the beginning of this thread

Someone was asking about the originality on this cape and in my belief it's a nice original gascape

here the pictures





somehow the stamp looks familiar, but i had not seen this maker "cwl" before

So I checked the codebook and it turns out to be :

Chepa-Orlik, Fabrik chemischer Papiere - Prag-Schmichov, Kartouzska 204

Well, that checks out, but then it suddenly hit me..... the round stamp.... looks like



Tadaaaaaaaaaa

So I am pretty sure the maker C.P. = Chepa-Orlik, Prag !! before they switched to the 3 letter code cwl somewhere in 1940

another mystery solved

Brilliant detective work Tom. Your other name should be Columbo!

Cheers

And it didn't take as much as as Columbo, or mr. Holmes, sometimes takes

No , but really, these little things can make me happy

Small pieces of the huge, never finished, puzzle fall into place

I hear you mate.

I was just writing a piece on my gasplane that was made by the previously unknown maker, C.P. 39 for a side project that I am currently working on. Thanks to your hard work I can happily revise this now. I will of course credit you with this information.

Thanks again and thanks for adding it to this thread.

Regards

Ian

Couple of pictures of my latest Gasplane haul. These things can get addictive!

A very big thanks to Tom for generously agreeing to sell his "Provisional manual for the handling of the Gascape, Gas detection and decontamination means of the troops."

Not something you see everyday, a dated TP pouch.

The material is very strange, a cross between linen and plastic if that is possible! It is also slightly bigger than other standard pouches that I have.

As always comments more than welcome.

Ian
