RAF 1941 Pattern Mae West - Flap Label
'Life-saving Waistcoat, Stole Inflated'. Stores ref. 22c/448. Size Large. The cloth is in excellent condition, retains good strong colour and other than some marks on the right lobe, is generally very clean. The Mae West retains all of the leg straps, grab handles, tying tapes, buttons, inflation lever flap, skull cap/heliograph pocket, flotation lamp pocket and fluorescene flap and strap. It appears to never had a lifeline/toggle fitted but we can supply one if the buyer requires it. Good original Air Ministry marked zip. Labelled as a 'Flap Type' with Air Ministry King's crown marks but this was clearly at a point when the contractor was using up 'Flap Type' labels as this example was never fitted with a 'flap'. An excellent example showing very little use. Stock code MW21076.
