FIELD GRADE REPRODUCTION
WWII US ARMY GAS DETECTION SHOULDER BRASSARD.
Gas Brassards were issued to all American, Canadian, British and Allied troops involved in the D-day Landings- both infantry and paratroopers. They were designed to change color in the presence of chemical agents in the event that the Germans resorted to using gas to defend their lines. To wear, simply slide it up the arm of the outer garment, and fasten the epaulet through the loop. These were copied directly from an original, and are made from the same style of coated paper. (No, these do will not detect poison gas.)
