It was not just human soldiers during the First World War who needed protection from the new dangers of chemical warfare. Animals serving beside them were also vulnerable. This gas mask for a German messenger dog was collected off the battlefield by a member of the 41st Battalion, Australian Imperial Force.
Its existence demonstrates the importance of dogs during the First World War. Making their way through the maze of trenches spread throughout the Western Front, dogs proved to be as reliable as soldiers in the dangerous job of running messages – and sometimes faster. Whether as messengers, guards or mascots, or simply by providing companionship to the men in the trenches, dogs served many vital roles. Come and experience other stories of animals in war in the Memorial’s galleries.
The mask is on display at the Australian War Memorial in the main building: First World War Gallery Western Front 1916.
