RAF 1941 Pattern Mae West


Code: MW16205

'Life-saving Waistcoat, Stole Inflated'.  Stores ref. 22c/447.  Size medium. The cloth is in good clean and undamaged condition.   The Mae West retains the skull cap/heliograph pocket, front buttons, grab handles and tying tapes.  Unfortunately it lacks the inflation lever flap, fluorescene flap/strap, leg tapes and floatation lamp pocket - all neatly removed.  There is no lifeline and toggle fitted but an unused one will be supplied free of charge for the buyer to fit if desired.  The original 'Lightning' brass zip is in excellent working condition.  Labelled  with War Department broad arrow markings.  What there is of this Mae West is in very good condition and it displays well.  Stock code MW16205.
