RAF 1932 Patt. Mae West Kapoks


Code: MW19637

Complete set of three pads linked together with linen webbing tapes. Two rectangular side pads and a kidney shaped neck pad. Constructed using internally rubberised cotton calico stuffed with hand teased Java kapok.  One of the side pads has an Air Ministry and King's crown marking with various markings and 1940 date code.

The pads are grubby and stained and have a rather crumpled appearance but no damage.  Good used condition.  Used in the ultra rare "Battle of Britain" green Mae Wests (also fit the yellow and green RCAF versions). Please note that these are not the same as the standard 1941 pattern Mae west pads. Stock code MW19637.
