1944 Dated 'D-Day' Lifebelt
Inflatable grey rubberized cotton lifebelt with oral inflation tube/valve and various cotton webbing straps/tying tapes to secure around the waist. War department broad arrow markings, 1944 date and other inspection marks. Some soiling/marking but remains in excellent flexible condition and would probably still inflate (not recommended as this will introduce potentially rotting moisture into the 'bladder'. This type of lifebelt was issued to many of the troops involved in the D-Day landings. Stock code M17483.
