WWII German Military Life Vest

This type of jacket was issued by the Kriegsmarine, but they were also used by the Luftwaffe, both with the "Seenothilfe" (Search and Rescue Units) and by operational aircrew. An identical jacket has been excavated on the wreck of a Battle of Britain Bomber, to prove the point! Ours is in very good original condition - there is a fitted gas inflation bottle - all straps and buckles are in place, with no perishing to the fabric.
