Throughout history, the vital role in warfare and exploration has been a matter of life and death. From ammunition and supplies dropped to troops during the Battle of Arnhem in 1944 (b/w photo), to the senior commanders of the 36th Division in Burma, ensuring their troops were well-equipped in 1945 (b/w photo), advancements in air supply technology have been crucial. Early innovations include smoke hoods (C017 / 6875) and breathing apparatus (C017 / 6876) from the 1880s, chemistry laboratory respirators (C017 / 6877), and even underwater photography from the 19th century. However, it wasn't just about keeping soldiers alive on the battlefield. Asbestos removal equipment, also from the 19th century, demonstrates the importance of protecting workers in hazardous environments. These historical artifacts remind us of the essential connection between air supply and human survival, both on and off the battlefield.
