Manufactured by GQ Parachute Co Ltd of Woking, Great Britain. Dated 1st & 31st December 1940. Early Dual Purpose type with provision for clip-on seat or chest type parachute packs. Manufactured from heavy olive drab cotton with twin front zip opening and zipped pockets. The suit is in very good condition; the material is clean and without wear or damage. Complete with the detachable fabric stole that would contain the inflatable stole (bladder). Both inflatable stole and the actual harness are not present (the latter of which never ever turn up).
