Poster Print of GWR station staff member in a gas mask, c.1939

GWR station staff member in a gas mask, c.1939

GWR station staff member in a gas mask, c.1939
During an air raid the threat of poison gas bombs being dropped by the German Luftwaffe was extremely high. Mustard gas was the most deadly gas available and could take up to 12 hours to take effect. 38 million gas masks were distributed in Britain to protect against any ill effects should gas bombs be dropped. After an air raid GWR staff would continue their normal duties, but in some instances would continue to wear their gas masks.

It must have been difficult to carry out normal tasks with limited visibility and restricted movement
