A man thoroughly washes his arm after being splashed with liquid blister gas. He is using soap and water and a nail brush to scrub away any remaining gas particles. ARP guidelines suggest changing the water three times during this process. This photograph has clearly been posed by a Ministry of Information model for use in some kind of leaflet, exhibition or poster.
