Things were a little different in Britain at this time.
Shortly after war was declared, bags specially created to carry gas-masks went on sale.
The Daily Mirror reported the creation of a new hairstyle, ‘The Gas Mask Curl.’ It consisted of curls on either side of the head, with a part down the center, perfect for accommodating the gas mask strap.


Siren suits, suits to be worn when the sirens sounded, began to appear in store windows. Jumpsuits (which served as body enclosures) with a zipper in the front, which could easily be worn over pajamas, were just the thing for a quick run to the air raid shelter.
