SOLD

Stores reference 22c/72.  Grey rubberized cotton stole for the 1941 pattern Mae West.  The material is in reasonable condition, it is crumpled, stained and stiffened in places.  Fortunately it remains supple enough to fit into a Mae West for display purposes.  The oral inflation tube is very flexible and the valve opens/closes with some effort.  Lubrication would no doubt help.  The stole comes without circlip, inflation lever or CO2 bottle.  These may be available to purchase separately.  War Department broad arrow marked with clear 2/45 manufacture date mark and later inspection dates.  This stole almost certainly would not inflate and hold air.  A bit tatty but good for display.  Priced accordingly.  Stock code MW27619.
