Gas mask for horses

"The Germans actually developed several types of gas masks for horses, and even one for dogs. This gas mask was found at a German equipment dump in Rozières, France, in August 1918 by the British Army."
Found at Science Museum, via A London Salmagundi.


  1. Some time ago, I happened across this image of dogs in gas masks on some website. I've always considered it to be one of the most striking photographs I've ever seen, though I know little of its context.

  2. More pix here, Ben -
