USAAF Emergency Sustenance Vest, C-1
Manufactured by Breslee Mfg. Co. Commonly known as the C-1 survival vest. The material is in good overall condition and complete with all pockets, pistol holster and straps. There are repairs to a couple of the front lower pockets (see photos) and general wear and tear - notably to the pistol holster strap. In addition two webbing straps have been crudely added - one at the neck and one close to the left shoulder (as worn). We don't know the purpose of these or when they were added. They would be very easy to remove if desired. All the pockets are labelled for contents. Good colour AAF winged star printed to left breast. AAF labelled and with inspection stamps including 'Breslee 45' mark. Stock code S19387.
