RAF 1941 Patt. Mae West Stole (Bladder)
Stores ref. 22c/72. Grey rubberized cotton stole for the 1941 pattern Mae West. The material is excellent, very flexible and quite clean. The oral inflation tube is equally good and the valve opens and closes freely. Not fitted with a circlip, inflation lever or CO2 bottle. These are currently available to purchase separately. War department broad arrow marked with 3/45 manufacture date and later inspection dates into the early 1950s. This would almost certainly still inflate but we advise against this as doing so introduces moisture and can promote internal rotting/perishing. An excellent late war example. Stock code MW21343.
