Royal Air Force Flying Life Vest Preserver Pattern 41 Tagged as a Size Large with Signalling torch and Battery as well as Plastic Acme Whistle Grouping that were also used by United States Army Air Forces Flight Crews and Pilots. The size is tagged as large with it fitting over a size 40 jacket as shown. T he vest is in good condition with the yellow cloth soft and supple and the noted issues of some of the snaps pulling from the material including the one on the torch pocket as well as the inflation bladders inside the zippered compartments being dried up and cracked along with the material being lightly. This would be a great addition to any Flight Gear Collection, Group or Grouping.
