S10 respirator filter questions.

I've been trying to find out the history and names of the 2 (technically 3 if you're counting left over Mk.2 No.1 S6 filters) filters used with the S10 and exactly what designations were used, the later more common PS10 filter's name i do know however its designation might've been the L12A1? been trying to confirm this via freedom of information requests to the MoD but its akin to pulling teeth, there is also the other earlier filter which was used in the S10's trials which i know not the name nor history behind. If anyone could help with general information and designations of these it'd be a massive help. I've attached photos of the earlier filter if it is of any help.

Finished cataloging your stamps already?

Far as I know there was a metal one for riot agents (CS) and a plastic one for NBC. I asked around once and can't remember if I got an answer or not. These are the 2 I have in my collection.

This gas mask and respirator blog has it listed as 'Unknown' S10 filters

Surely collecting vintage illustrations of Varga girls would be a better use of your time? Or, alternatively, wanking? Just a thought.

I checked that Varga thing, seems I have a Zippo presentation box with one of his images on it. I prefer 1980s/90s Paul Raymond porn mag models, Club International and Mayfair, not the cheaper Escort but Fiesta was good for that cartoon about the cat, think his name was Firkin.
