RAF Combined Pattern Flying Suit
Manufactured by Irving Air Chute of Great Britain Ltd. Size Large. Dated 4th & 12th October 1940. Dual Purpose type with provision for clip-on seat or chest type parachute packs. Manufactured from heavy olive drab cotton with twin front zip opening and zipped pockets. The suit is in excellent, probably unissued condition. The only thing to note is relatively minor damage to the bottom of the zip tape of the right zip (see photo). This does not affect careful use of the zip. The suit is very clean and without wear or damage. Complete with the detachable fabric stole that would contain the inflatable bladder. Both the actual bladder and actual harness are not present (the latter of which never ever turn up). Excellent large Air Ministry and A.I.D marked label. Chain hanger. A superb piece of kit and useful for filling a mannequinn as it negates the need for a separate parachute harness and mae-west. Stock code S17638.
