This red and blue mask was for a two to five year old child. It dates from World War II when the British government gave everyone in Britain a gas mask as protection against possible poison gas attacks by the Germans. This mask was known as the 'Mickey Mouse' mask even though it doesn't look anything like the cartoon mouse! Because many small children were frightened of gas masks, bright colours and the friendly name were used.
