RAF / USAAF M-357-A Dinghy Kite


Code: S17923

Box kite with a cleverly designed 'break-down' tubular aluminium frame and cotton sailcloth. These were used to hoist the aerial cable for the 'Gibson Girl' radio issued with both R..A.F. & U.S.A.A.F. multi-man dinghies. Marked with 'user instructions' to the sailcloth.

Reasonable used condition - the cloth has light soiling and a few small holes. There is also minor damage / repair to one of the strut joints (see photo). No canister or bag. Stock code S17923.
