Churchills forgotten hero

BBC News Item

A previously unknown letter from Winston Churchill has been discovered during an investigation into Edward Harrison, the World War I army chemist credited with the invention of the gas mask.
A fascinating insight into WW1 gas mask technology and to a man that literally worked himself to death trying to perfect the best kit possible for the lads in the trenches.

Just a shame there are not others around today with the same ethic this gentlemen had..

Probably in a way we all owe a great deal of thanks for the work this man did leading the way to the kit we have now.....
