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


Stores ref. 22c/72. Grey rubberized cotton stole for the \'41 pattern Mae West. The material is generally very good and flexible with just minor staining and a few small edge tears (not serious - see photos). The oral inflation tube is also quite flexible and the valve opens and closes freely. There is no inflation lever or CO2 bottle fitted. Air Ministry King\'s crown marked but undated.. Would possibly still inflate but we never recommend this as doing so introduces moisture and can promote internal rotting. A very good example. Stock code MW16840.
