RAF MK.15T Flying Suit
RAF Coverall, Aircrew, MK.15T. By P.U.C. Stores ref. 22c/SPECIAL. Dated March1991. Size - 'Special Measure'. Typical olive green nomex flying suit with full front zip, zipped chest pockets, knee pockets/knee board provision, lower leg pockets, waist side seam entry pockets, zipped lower legs, pen pockets, velcro adjustable waist and ankle tabs etc. This example also has some 'extra' male press studs on either side of the main zip - see photos. Some general wear and tear including 'pilling' of the collar, a fray hole adjacent to the main zip and a small darn to the backside but in fairly good used condition overall. Evidence of badge removal on the chest and upper arms. The original owner flew as a Flight Engineer with 47 Squadron amongst others. All the suits he was issued with were made to 'Special Measure' which basically means they were made to measure for him. This suit is approx. 50" at the chest (pit to pit x 2) with a 44" waist when measured laid flat and zipped. The suit should be suitable for someone between about 5'9" & 6' tall. A reasonable suit in an unusually large size. Stock code S19707.
