Uh.. because otherwise everyone would die from poison gasses. They protected the bodies, and the lives of the soldiers spending their days in the trenches.
My gas tank is low, i need to get some gas.GAS!! Put on your masks!!
yes gas masks were used
Gas masks were gradually developed in the 1800s and the exact year you need is in the link below.
To protect them from in hailing dangerous gases when they were in warfare
yes you did they were called mick mouse gas masks they were for children
The first technical gas masks would have to be bandanas, because they served the purpose of WW1 and 2 gas masks, just in a less sophisticated way.
There weren't enough gas masks and they didn't work.
Gas masks were invented during WW1 by a Newfoundlander, presumably in a trench in France.
You don't put gas into gas masks. They are used to keep out poisonous gases.
Most of the gas masks used by soldiers in WW1 were useless. They did not prevent the men from breathing in the harmful gas.
Not all gas masks are compatible with helmets, so some soldiers forgo helmets to wear their masks.
Soldiers in the trenches got gas masks after the need became apparent. Chlorine gas was first used by the Germans on April 22, 1915. Mustard gas was used in 1917. 30,000 died from the gas and 50,000 troops were injured because of gas use. Gas masks did not work with mustard gas because that burns the skin.Here is a first hand account of gas warfare.http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/gas.htmhttp://chemicalweapons.cenmag.org/when-chemicals-became-weapons-of-war/
The reason they wore gas masks is because they weren't sure weather the Nazi's would drop gas bombs as they did in WW1
Separation of what? If it is the separation of East/West Germany then it is because gas masks were used in Gas Warfare, which was used in WWI and WWII.
They wore gas masks because it fit in with the theme of the video.
1.3 million gas masks were made in WW2
They were called Gas Masks
how did gas masks change society? what
The use of masks goes back to the 1800s when inventors developed masks for the miners and soldiers. We still have our soldiers outfitted with gas masks.
Gas masks are used when the air is polluted so they give you fresh air. They are often used when there is toxic gases around.
Nope =]. I've been in Army Cadets for 7-8 months && ain't heard anything like needing gas masks. Yu might try em on, on camps && stuff but not sure.Xo Kat
Well, I think that it was compulsory for men woman and children (in the army or not) to carry gas masks at all times, just in case there was a gas attack.
so people didn't get poisoned by bad gas in gas bombs.
To filter out gas and offer protection for whoever wore it.
Yes everybody had to have a gas mask. even animals
