R.A.F. 1930 Pattern Sidcot Flying Suit


Stores Ref. 22c/315. Size 6 (Ht. 5\'11\"-6\'1\", Br. 40/42\", Wt. 36-38\", Seat 41-45\", Leg 31.5\"). Early wartime version of the Sidcot produced in grey green rubberised cotton as used for the 1932 pattern Mae West. The material is in good overall condition although faded and with some fairly light soiling and marking. The internal rubberising is shedding as usual and there are some small holes dotted around the suit (4 near the top of the left leg zip, 1 under the map pocket and 1 in the left sleeve) but these don\'t really detract at all. Two buttons are missing from the fly flap (we may be able to supply replacements). All of the Air Ministry marked chromed zips are in working condition but would benefit from lubrication. The main lacks the puller tag but the rest have both the tag and attached cloth puller tabs. The lining has a few small holes but is generally good. Complete with belt, cloth hanger, label with 1940 date code and matching size 6 1930 pattern collar. Overall this is a good used example of this scarce suit in a rarely found large size. Stock code S15808.
