RAF / AM ‘41 PATTERN ‘MAE WEST’ BLADDER
An excellent condition early war yellow bladder.
Supple serviceable condition with slight age hardening to the opening that takes the Co2 bottle. Some age perishing to some of the red rubber mouth piece surround, otherwise stunning condition, that would be hard to better !
Head cushion with AM markings and test date 9/41 and fitting date of October 1941.
There are no re-issue, late or post war dated stampings, suggesting this was only ever deployed for service once.
Early yellow bladders are now a hard item to find, especially in this condition !
This is a SOLD Item.
