1938: Japanese Gas Attack Posters

Asphyxiant Gas - Evacuation and Aid

“In 1938, the Japanese Red Cross worked with government authorities to create a series of posters to teach the public about the new Anti-Aircraft Defense Law, which was enacted in seeming anticipation of air strikes following the outbreak of the Japan-China War (1937-1945). Among other things, the new law required citizens to take protective measures against gas attacks and prepare for disinfection, evacuation and relief.”

    I wish I knew what was going on in some of these. Way too much kanji. I can only pick up some of the kana and there definitely isn’t much of that. I’m assuming it’s going over the effects of different gas? And ways to prevent exposure?
