RAF 1930 pattern Sidcot flying suit collar

RAF 1930 pattern Sidcot flying suit collar

Code: S12299

SOLD

'Suits, Flying, 1930 pattern, collars, fur, Type A'.  Size 4, stores reference 22c/299.  Removeable collar used with the 1930 pattern 'Battle Of Britain' flying suit.  This example has very good soft dense light brown coloured fur on the same rubberized cotton backing from which the suit is manufactured.  Somewhat crumpled with light to moderate soiling and wear.  Note also that both rear elastics are broken.  Marked faintly in pen to rear 'CRANWELL' and stencilled 'A.E.' in red.  Air Ministry King's crown labelled and with A.M Crown stamp, A.I.D inspection and size '6' mark contradicting the label.  Comparing with other 'size marked' collars I'd suggest this is a bit bigger than a '4' but not massively.  The sizing of these collars is not an exact science and sometimes collars with the same markings differ in size.  In our experience most collars will fit at least one size either way of that indicated.  This will also fit the 1940 and 1941 pattern suits.  Very good overall condition.  Stock code S12299.
