R.A.F. 1941 Pattern Mae West Stole (Bladder)


Stores ref. 22c/72. Grey rubberized cotton stole for the \'41 pattern mae-west. The material is generally has fairly light even soiling and is flexible/undamaged. The oral inflation tube is also flexible and the valve opens and closes freely. There is no inflation lever or CO2 bottle fitted but the lever circlip is in place. Air Ministry King\'s Crown marked and dated 10/42. I imagine this would probably still inflate but I never recommend this as doing so introduces moisture and can promote internal rotting. A good example. Stock code MW15757.
