Luftwaffe Brustfallschirme, Fl.30210.  Manufactured by Autoflug, Berlin.  Rare early pattern webbing harness for use with clip-on detachable packs.  Although of Irvin design it is fitted with ring and spring clip fastenings pre-dating those that have the more common circular quick release box.  Labelled with manufacturer's details and serial number.  'KOHNKE' is stencilled on one of the front straps.  The harness is in very good used condition with fairly light soiling and the clips/metal components are good but do have some surface pitting.  No backpad or pack.  

This type of parachute was worn in the early stages of the war and during the Battle of Britain.  Buy it while you can.  A superb display piece.   Stock code M27524.
