RAF Coastal Command Irvin Flying Jacket

A very original example with the collar hood fully intact and crisp yellow paint to increase visibility for rescue purposes. The jacket is fitted with the original Lightning zips in good working order with the sleeve zips having King's Crown and AM marks. The leather is in generally good condition but with some very neat patch repairs to the right arm. The interior fur retains a strong golden colour, although it has had some attention from the moth as have the cuffs and waistband area. The leather hanging strap is in place and while no label is fitted, the jacket is a small size but would make an excellent display example of this increasingly hard to find variant on the RAF Irvin.
