USAAF type C life raft pack

USAAF type C life raft pack

Code: S22389

SOLD

By Rubbercraft Corporation of America.  Pack for the One-Man Raft, Pneumatic, type C-2.  Manufactured in heavy olive drab canvas.  This is a 'revised' pack on which the large cadmium plated snap hooks have been reversed to face the upper side.  This modification alleviated the problem of the pack accidentally opening if the pilot baled out.  Fitted with lanyard/snaphook and has sewn cloth loops for attachment of a seat cushion.  The canvas is faded and a little soiled but in good undamaged condition and well stamped.  Date of manufacture is December 1944.  Photographed packed with material to give shape but supplied empty.  Stock code S22389.
