RAF 1941 Pattern Sidcot Flying Suit
Size 4. Stores Ref. 22c/776. (Ht. 5'8"-5'9", Ch. 36-38", Wt. 32-34", Seat 38-40"). Electrically wired version of the Sidcot for use with heated gloves and boots etc. The material is in good to very good overall condition. There is a small tear at the top of the 'wind flap' adjacent to the collar (see photo) but this could easily be repaired. In addition there are some pulled stitches on the wiring exit point flap (see photo) and a few loose stitches elsewhere. The suit is remarkably clean indicating little use. All wiring is complete as are the press stud connectors and 'lift-the-dot' posts for use with R.A.E. 'Irvin' gloves. Whilst the zips are all functional and original to the suit they would benefit from some lubrication. All are Air Ministry marked and complete with their cloth puller tags. With cloth hanger, belt and Air Ministry marked label. Also fitted with good collar marked with reference numbers/AID stamps etc. A very good lightly used example. Stock code S18505.
