RAF Observer type parachute harness
Stores reference 15A/144. 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 pale blue fleck. There are various marks on the webbing including 'OBSERVER, 15A/144', faint war department broad arrow marks on the risers and a 'two letter' code on most sections. The webbing is in good undamaged condition but a bit 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 war department broad arrow marked backpad. 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 S22665.
