RAF Observer parachute harness

RAF Observer parachute harness

Code: S23257

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 green fleck.  There is no label but it does have clear markings 'OBSERVER 15A/141' plus A.I.D. stamps and serial number.  There are also faint war department arrows visible on the risers.  The webbing is in good undamaged condition but a little soiled through normal use. The QRB and other metalwork are also good.  Fitted with  a pair of  connector 'rings' at the back for attaching a dinghy pack (not included) and an excellent Air Ministry stamped 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 S23257.
