Your comments:

  • I still have my father's complete set of these plastic glasses. He never used them for the 4 years he was in the Royal Marine's (1942-46) but he did use them after the war on building sites (he was re-trained as a brick layer after demob) in an effort to keep dust out of his eyes.

    They didn't work very well, so using them for a gas attack would probably not have given a very good result protection wise.
