RAF GQ Parachute Pack & Harness

The pack is nicely labelled confirming type B Mk.19 and RAF Stores ref. 15A/946. This also carries a GQ acceptance stamp and dated 4th October, 1960. The pack also carries a further label marked GQ Parachute Assembly Back Type Mk. 26A stores ref. 15A/917. The canopy is enclosed and while we have not been able to inspect it, it looks to be complete. The set also includes a full harness with quick release buckle and D ring release mechanism and cable. Other than the bungees being missing, the set appears complete and would complement an RAF display representing 1960's air crew. On offer as a collector's item and certainly not warranted for its original purpose!
