Baxter, Taylor & Woodhouse electrically heated suit

Baxter, Taylor & Woodhouse electrically heated suit

Code: S25394

RESERVED

By Baxter, Woodhouse & Taylor Ltd. 'Coveralls, Electrically Heated'.  Size 3 (Height 5'9" - 6'0").  1967 dated.  One-piece 'WINDAK' suit in heavy blue cotton.  Zipped from the groin to the neck with a press stud fastened storm flap, and an integral hood with drawstring closure.  Flapped pockets on either side of the waist and flapped patch pockets just above the knees, the latter with eyelet 'drain holes'.  Full cotton lining with integral braces/suspenders to help alleviate the weight of the suit.   Integral wiring loom between the lining and outer cloth, this serves to heat the suit and provide a current to connectors at the wrists and ankles where electrically heated gloves and bootees were attached.  Knitted collar and wristlets.  Excellent condition.  The suit is very clean, undamaged and has working original 'AZF' zips.  There is minor age-related wear on the rubber washers of the heated glove/ankle connectors and light moth trailing on the fleece lined part of the hood & cuffs.  The suit retains the umbilical cord and large rubber-covered Flexo patented 2-pin plug marked 'R.E.W.C.  AM WD'.  With manufacturer's labels.  These Baxter, Woodhouse, Taylor suits would appear to have been issued to the Royal Navy and Fleet Air Arm but precise use is as yet unclear.  They bear very strong resemblances to both the WW2 yellow 'Taylorsuit' produced by the same company and also the 'Beadon' flying suit (collar/cuffs).  A superb rare suit and an excellent display piece.  Stock code S25394.
