RAF 1941 pattern Mae West stole inflation cylinder

RAF 1941 pattern Mae West stole inflation cylinder

Code: MW27546

SOLD

CO2 cylinder, Type C, 8 gramme.  Stores reference 22c/94.  Second pattern CO2 gas inflation bottle with a pinched 'waist' section designed to even out the gas flow on release.  Used with the stole within the 1941 pattern life-saving waistcoat (Mae West).  The cylinder has been deployed but enough of the threaded hollow copper plug remains to allow it to be screwed into an inflation lever.  The original 'blued' finish is good.  Now extremely difficult to find.  Available to UK customers only.  Ideally this should be collected in person or posted entirely at your risk (different payment arrangements required).  Stock code MW27546.

This item is only available for collection.
