Luftwaffe M38 gasmask named Anton Juszczak L50375 (Antwerp, Den Bosch and Arnhem related)
A very nice M38 gasmask with straps and mask named to Anton Juszczak L50375 .
The feldpost number L50375 refers to a flak unit originally stationed in Antwerp, Belgium.
(12.3.1943-7.9.1943) 3. Batterie leichte Flak-Abteilung 691,
dann 3. Batterie leichte Flak-Abteilung 691 (v).
More information on the unit can be seen here. The mother unit (18. Flak Brigade) retreated from Lille to Antwerp, Den Bosch and eventually Arnhem/Xanten as the front moved to Germany.
The lid of the canister is slightly dented but it still closes and opens without problems. A very nice named gasmask with strap and possibility for further research. I will include a original short strap to supplement the long strap.
