RAF Observer parachute harness

RAF Observer parachute harness

Code: S24120

SOLD

Stores reference 15A/144.  Type D, Mk.1.  A standard 'Observer' harness for use with clip on chest-type parachute packs.  It is of genuine RAF/British manufacture rather than the more commonly found Canadian version and has the fully rounded quick release box (QRB).  Cream/white webbing with a central black fleck.  There is no label but faint King's crown 'A.M.' marks are visible on the risers.  The webbing is in good undamaged condition but a little soiled through normal use.  Note the repair to the webbing 'sleeve' used to keep the bunched webbing neat (this is just a small cloth band and not integral to the webbing).  The QRB and other metalwork are also good.  Fitted with a good  Irvin Mk.1 backpad, stores reference 15A/191.  The harness will require adjustment at the shoulders to suit the wearer.  A very good used example of these increasingly hard to source harnesses.  Stock code S24120.
