Code: MWDFGF-322

SOLD

Complete set of three pads linked together with linen webbing tape.  Comprised of two rectangular side pads and a kidney shaped neck pad.  Constructed using internally rubberised cotton calico 'pockets' stuffed with hand-teased Java kapok.  The pads are rather dirty but undamaged and have a fading Air Ministry mark on the neck pad.  Very good used overall condition.  These were used in the 'Battle of Britain' green Mae Wests and will also fit the yellow and green R.C.A.F. versions.  Please note that these are not the same as the more common standard 1941 pattern Mae west pads.  Now virtually unobtainable.  Stock code MWDFGF-322.
