RAF type H electrically heated flying suit

SOLD

Lining, Suit, Electrically Heated Type H.  Size unknown (manufactured as small, medium or large), stores reference 22c/1012-1014.  One-piece button fronted full length suit in brown Union twill or cotton lined rayon, fitted with a simple knitted collar.  The electrical supply was taken through a flexible cable (umbilical) with a 3-pin connector/plug.  A shorter cable close to the neck supplied power to an oxygen mask heater.  The suit had alternative snap connectors at the wrists and ankles to accommodate both 12 and 24 volt power supplies.  This allowed the use of Type H gloves and booties as well as earlier Type D garments or even combinations of both.  Although a little faded, the material is clean and appears to be undamaged with a very good moth free collar.  It retains both connector leads and plugs but lacks a label.  This is an excellent used example of what is now a very difficult suit to find.  Stock code S27534.
