RAF Observer type  parachute pack

RAF Observer type parachute pack

Code: S22661


Stores Ref. 15A/156 (pack alone) or 15A/141 (with canopy).  Two point quick connector chest pack.  Attaches to the Observer type harness by the engagement of a pair of steel loops with a pair of hooded snap-hooks located on the chest.  This example is manufactured in the usual sandy coloured plain weave duck canvas.  It is complete with all the webbing grab handles, rip-cord flap and rip-cord handle housing.  There is a faded label marked 'PACK TYPE C, MK.2 FOR NYLON RIGGING LINES'.  The remaining text/numbers are illegible.  The pack is generally quite clean apart from a few stains and in very good condition.  It is fitted with a full set of bungee cords and ripcord/handle.  No canopy is fitted and the pack has been packed out for photographing.  It will be sent empty to reduce weight/bulk. We can supply the 'rings' required to fit the pack to a harness at extra cost (you would need to find or fabricate metal plates to use them).  Although a post WW2 issue pack these are still difficult to find and would make an excellent display piece in lieu of a wartime example.  Stock code M22661.
