RAF 1941 pattern Mae West
'Life-saving Waistcoat, Stole Inflated'. Stores reference 22c/447. Size medium. The cloth is in very good overall condition although a bit faded and soiled with a small stitched repair on the front left lobe (as worn). The Mae West has all leg straps, both grab handles, tying tapes and original buttons, inflation lever pocket, skull cap/heliograph pocket, flotation lamp pocket and the fluorescene flap/strap - all in very good to excellent condition. Also fitted with a lifeline/toggle. Excellent original Air Ministry marked brass zip although this appears to have been re-fitted as there is minor damage at both ends - see photographs. War department broad arrow marked label. A very good used example. Stock code MW22650.
