I am terribly sorry, I am not quite sure whether or not I am misusing
this forum, if so - please feel free to remove my message, if it
is intended for English Only expressions. But I recently saw an
authentic Gas Mask in an Army / Navy store, and I was puzzled to
see a German saying "Hier Stopfen Abziehen Dann Kappe Abschrauben."
I was wondering what the rough translation of this German phrase
was, and why it is on a gas mask.
