RAF 1930 pattern Sidcot flying suit collar


Code: S12295

'Suits, Flying, 1930 pattern, collars, fur, Type A'.  Stores reference illegible but probably 22c/299.  Size 4.  Removeable collar used with the 1930 pattern 'Battle Of Britain' flying suit.  This example has very good dense light/mid brown coloured fur on the same rubberized cotton backing from which the suit is manufactured.  Shows use and wear with the section around the buttonholes being quite stiff and soiled.  With faint Air Ministry King's crown, possible 1940 date and other marks including the owner's name and service number.  The sizing of these collars is not an exact science and sometimes collars with the same markings differ in size.  In our experience most collars will fit at least one size either way of that indicated.  This will also fit the 1940 and 1941 pattern suits. Quite good overall condition.  Stock code S12295.
