R.A.F. 1941 Pattern Mae West Bladder


Stores ref. 22c/72. Grey rubberized cotton stole for the \'41 pattern mae-west. The material is generally very good and is flexible/undamaged although it has soiling/spot marking. The oral inflation tube is also flexible and the valve opens and closes freely. There is no inflation lever or CO2 bottle fitted. Air Ministry and 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 decent example. Stock code MW16271.
