R.A.F. Type K Dinghy Pack, Type A


Seat Pack, Type A, MK.III. Storces ref. 27C/2088. The single-man Type K dinghy was carried folded and compressed within a variety of different packs and used in conjunction with the airman\'s parachute equipment. The Type A pack attached to the parachute pack in place of the usual Sorbo rubber seat cushion on the \'Pilot\'/seat type parachute harness. Manufactured in heavy olive drab cotton canvas, broadly rectangular in shape with a separate cover attached with press-studs. They have internal stowage pockets to house the accessories not carried within the dinghy itself. Multi-lingual label stitched to the cover. Some soiling but in very good overall condition bar the loss of the webbing lanyard and slight damage to one corner. Has not gone hard like the few that do turn up nowadays. Stock code S15318.
