RAF Observers parachute harness Stores Refrence 15A/137

manufactured by G & T.L. & stamped with serial number 92369. Designed for use with clip-on chest-type parachute packs. This is a genuine RAF/British manufactured example rather than more commonly found Canadian version. Cream/white webbing with a central black fleck;both shoulder straps are stamped AM with a Kings Crown property mark. The harness features the fully rounded QR box as fitted to wartime British harnesses as opposed to the D shaped QRB found on RCAF and post war issue examples. The pack attachment clips are again in perfect condition and fully functioning. Fitted with an original back pad which is again in good condition but some minor staining;it does not seem to have ever carried a label. The harness is well above average condition and the QRB functions perfectly. Mick Prodger's excellent 'Luftwaffe V RAF Flight Equipment' features a near identical example by the same maker illustrated on page 18. A very fine original example of what is becoming increasingly hard to find. Please see the complementary observer parachute pack we have also just listed.
