Stores Ref. 22c/1070. 'Overalls Flying, Lightweight, Packs, Back'. This is the backpack designed for the lightweight flying overall (Beadon Suit) which replaced the Sidcot suit in 1945. Made from the same grey gabardine as the suit and approx. 45 x 45cm with two adjustable webbing shoulder straps and various pockets - one of which has a zip fastening. The pack was used to carry rations and medical supplies etc. This example is somewhat faded and grubby - particularly to one side. One popper is missing on the pocket flap - see photo. No label. Quite a rare item to find. Stock code S18893.
