RAF Irvin Flying Suit Thermally Insulated Trousers
Designed to be worn in conjunction with the insulated flying jacket and much favoured by bomber aircrew in WWII. This example carries a label indicating a size 3 example, stores ref. 22C/319. These came from a aviation museum display depicting a Wellington crew member. The leather is in generally excellent issued condition and the fur lining is exceptional. The original brasses are fitted and remain elastic. The only issue with this set is that one zip is missing the puller while the other is missing the puller arm. Both zips are therefore sewn closed but this does not detract from a display point of view. These would pair up nicely with the Coastal Command Irvin flying jacket we have also listed today. Competitively priced.
