RAF '41 Pattern Mae West - Complete

A particularly nice example of an RAF ’41 Pattern Life Vest (Mae West) complete with inflation stole, Kapok Pads and Co2 lever. All components are of course original items.
Overall condition is very good with no rips or holes but the male fastener is missing from the flap cover to the flotation light pocket. In addition, the pull has separated from the zip runner although this is present and the zip operates perfectly without it.
All leg ties are present as is the mooring line to keep crew members together in the water. The ripper bag is still partially stitched closed by the dye pack is no longer in situ.
There is no Co2 bottle but I am able to supply one at no extra cost other than the price of postage since this item is restricted outside the UK and will be posted separately at the buyer’s own risk.
