In popular cultureEdit

  • The Mk IV General Service Respirator is featured in the film Sucker Punch. While the Mk IV is anachronistic for World War I, the events in the film are actually imaginary.
  • The Mk IV General Service Respirator is featured in the video game Battlefield 1. It is carried by the US, British, Italian and French soldiers and oddly is the first person model of the M17 gas mask used by the German soldiers in third person. Its appearance is anachronistic.
