RAF Observer Type Parachute Harness
By G & T.L. Stores reference 15A/137. This is 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. Cream/white webbing with a central red/blue fleck. It has the fully rounded quick release (QR) box and is labelled 'G & T.L. OBSERVER, Serial 46226'. No obvious date marks. The webbing is in good undamaged condition but is a bit soiled through normal use. The front of the QR box has a small knock (see photos) but all of the metalwork is otherwise good. Fitted with a pair of connector 'rings' at the back for attaching a dinghy pack (not included) and a good King's Crown Air Ministry marked backpad. The latter stencilled 'BK 6S'. A good '+' used example of these increasingly hard to find harnesses. Stock code S20271.
