Lining, kapok quilted, 1941 pattern.  Stores reference 22c/855.  Size 4 (Ht. 5'8/5'9", Br. 36/38", Wt. 32/34").   Brown rayon kapok quilted one-piece liner worn beneath the 1941 pattern Sidcot flying suit.  The front of the lining is closed from the neck to the crutch and each side from the waist to the ankle by sliding zip fasteners.  An 8" zip fastener is provided at each wrist to facilitate the attachment of a pair of electrically heated gloves to an electrically heated lining when these are worn together.  A buttoned fly flap allows the airman to use the toilet without total removal of the garment.  A small slit at the waist allows egress of the supply cable from an electrically heated lining if worn.  The material is in good overall condition bar marks/stains and some fading, notably on the legs.  There is a small tear at the neck and a couple of stitched repairs on the back and right arm (see photographs). All zips are original, the side/leg ones complete with puller tags.  The main front zip is marked '7', the side zips are Air Ministry 'W' marked whilst the cuffs are smaller in gauge and 'Lightning' marked.  Clear label and complete with hanging loop.   Good used.  Worth more than the cost for the zips alone.  Stock code 23663.
