    I have heard first hand from Austrian women that gas masks were not issued in Vienna during the war. Does anyone know what was the policy regarding gas masks in Germany?

    Some 30's models here listed as civilian:

    Nothing on issue but it's a remarkable site I'd not seen before so there may be more info there:

    I know that Graz in Austria had a very large bunker system for the population.
    This was dug into the mountain and contained large steel sealed doors and self contained air system.

    What a range and a very interesting site. Thank you.

    Interesting to hear about Graz. I wonder if this was the norm for Austria.
