mickey mouse gas mask!

A friend who had been a child in World War 2 in England was bemoaning that she never got a Mickey Mouse gas mask.  She was five and when they brought in such masks a child had to be under five to be given one.  I think they were like normal gas masks but with ears.  My friend still feels bereft over not getting that mask.

I found the below picture on the web.  It was probably a prototype.  Surely nobody took their babies out in such a contraption?

Ps:  today is the first day i have gone a few hours without my hiking stick.  Slowly my bad knee is getting better.
