Default Heavy gas protection suit with wooden hangar

Hello all,

I got this heavy gas suit (schwere Gasbekleidung) together with its wooden hangar.
All items are nicely stamped WaA and LS (Luftschutz).

The hangar is quite hard to find I think.
What is that other wooden "thing" underneath the hangar ?
I could not figure out how to use it...

Does anyone have more information about the boots and gloves needed for this suit ?
Is anything else missing ?

Thanks,
Christian

The pants. Interesting the side fastener straps show the old style WaA eagle, whereas the suspender straps show the later style eagle. Both WaA 330.

And another LS stamp on the inside.

Hello,

I was wondering if the Luftschutz Schwere Gasbekleidung shown here with its specific markings is the same pattern than the heavy protective suit worn by Entgiftungstruppen, particulary in specialized units linked with Nebeltruppen ?
Or did exist another one for them, like for instance a rubberized overalls ?
I don't refer to the leather suit seldomly worn in Nebel units during pre war period.

Thanks by advance for any informations or pics about this point.

The link already given in this thread refers to a Lufchutz use :

But was this rubber suit used too by Heer decontamination units ?

Hello,

In this link, about the Kfz 92 used for decontamination, there is a pic showing that this rubber suit seems to have been used by Heer :

http://www.kfzderwehrmacht.de/Homepa...2/kfz__92.html

Anybody has informations about the point if the same Schwere Gasbekleidung was used by Luftschutz, Heer, LW and KM ?
