USAAF A-4 QAC Parachute Harness

Code: SOLD-1527

SOLD
Manufactured by the Standard Parachute Corp. Group 2 'Yellow' . Quick attachable chest type parachute harness. White webbing harness copied from the British RAF Irvin type and with a similar quick-release box. This incorporates a simple modification in the form of a spring clip 'key' which when used prevented the wearer from accidentally pressing the release plate. The harness has two bright yellow patches sewn to the upper straps to signify that this harness has a pair of hooded snap-hooks located on the chest. The corresponding pack would have two steel loops attached to the back. Group 1 'Red' harnesses had steel loops on the harness and hooks on the pack. Complete with correct backpad/cushion with centrally positioned brass 'Talon' zip fastener. Fitted with cadmium plated 'loops' at the rear for attachment of a dinghy pack. The harness is clearly marked with manufacturer details, part numbers and November 1944 date - the marks are much clearer than shown in the photos. Excellent clean condition throughout. Stock code S19043.
