1932 Pattern Mae West Life Jacket - Click for the bigger picture

1932 Pattern Mae West Life Jacket

This example is made by the Dominion Rubber Company in Canada and was issued to both RAF and RCAF air crew in WWII. Finished in yellow rubberised canvas, it is fitted with the original label confirming both the RAF and RCAF issue numbers, as well as the size which is large. It has various stencilled instructions to the front and on the reverse "Armament". Generally in excellent condition, with a small stitch repair near the inflation tube loop, but this is more or less hidden behind the flap cover. The jacket is on offer without kapoks or bladder, although we have an excellent pair of reproduction kapoks at additional cost if required. This jacket represents excellent value, particularly when compared with current retail prices on early RAF green examples.
