Nice set does justice to the item. Make sure no rust gets at them, maybe better to store textiles separately.

Here is a WW2 German M38 Gas Mask and carrying case. Probably one of the more iconic parts of the german field gear. This case is dated 1943. The mask is dated 1944. I got the mask from a museum that was closing down, it has never been used, only on display. Also shown is the aluminum gas mask retainer frame. These were used while in garrison to help stretch the masks to the shape to be worn. Also shown is a skin decontamination tablet container.

Here is a nice "Y" Strap set. The stamp is hard to see in the pictures, but reads Mainz 1942, there is something before Mainz that starts with a C or G, but it is too diffcult to make out. These seem to be getting real hard to find in good condition and not faked.

Zeltheringe are the steel pegs, Zeltzubehörbeutel is the bag. I have a WW1 bag, this was hung within the Tornister. The Tornister was only a formal old-fashioned piece of equipment, after WW1 seldom worn in the field. I don't know how the tent poles etc. were carried without this.
In WW1 there was an alternative in place of the Tornister,  the Sturmgepäck (not shown here), which was a clever improvisation using 2 Brotbeutelriemen for carrying the Zeltbahn, Mantel, Kochgeschirr etc. which was hooked to the cartridge pouches at the front and then fastened at the back, "leichtes Sturmgepäck", this idea evolved just before the outbreak of WW1.

Link below is a guide as to how the set is packed (in English), however, there are some variances, as a mixture of reproduction items, originals and similar Swiss or other European items are used, resulting in the pack not being closable.
