R.A.F. Observer Type Parachute Harness

Unknown maker. Stores ref. 15A/137. Standard \'Observer\' harness for use with clip-on chest-type parachute packs. This is a genuine RAF/British manufactured example rather than more commonly found Canadian version. Cream/white webbing with a central green fleck. Has the fully rounded QR box as fitted to wartime British harnesses. Labelled but this only has the serial number marked, a fading AID inspection stamp and another indistinct stamp (possibly the ref. code). The harness is quite clean and is undamaged. The QR box has marks/scratches. No backpad fitted. A very good used example. Increasingly difficult to find. Stock code P16797.
