Title:ANTI-GAS CLOTHING AND PERSONAL CLEANSING (PART 4) [Allocated Title]
Film Number:ADM 2564-5
Other titles:PASSIVE DEFENCE [Series Title]
Summary: Naval instructional film using the same format and some of the same stock-shots of ADM 2564-2.
Description: The effect of vesicants. Anti-gas suit - duration of the protection provided against liquid and vapour. Decontamination of the suit by boiling. During an engagement, contamination cannot always be treated immediately - fighting efficiency must be maintained. Liquid agent on exposed areas of skin must be mopped up with the cotton waste provided in the gas-mask haversack. Anti-gas ointment should be applied to affected areas - rub vigorously into the skin for at least 30 seconds, avoiding the region of the eyes. Form and don a clean pair of eye-shields. Apply more anti-gas ointment to the hands. Persons wearing ordinary porous clothing should try to remove it and wash themselves as soon as possible. Anti-gas ointment is not effective against exposure to vapour and heaving clothing should be changed quickly. "Don't forget that the main thing about personal cleansing is to do it".
