Original WW2 RAF Parachute Bag

Original WW2 RAF Parachute Bag

Code: 52469


An original Royal Air Force Parachute Bag dating from the Second World War and in very good condition.

These bags were used throughout the Second World War and are now synonymous with Aircrew, particularly Bomber Command, during this period.

The bag is made from a heavy khaki canvas and features two reinforcing straps which run the entire circumference of the bag, becoming handles at the top. The bag fastens with a 'DOT' brand bras zipper which is typical of the period. The bag features flaps to the interior which are all present and retain their brass press studs. The Air Ministry AM and crown marking is present to each side of the bag which is a nice feature as these stamps have usually faded or been worn away.

The bag is in very good condition with limited signs of wear and use which are to be expected with a bag of this vintage. The zipper works well and the handles are in good condition. Overall it displays very well but please take time to study the pictures before purchasing.

All in all a nice bag which displays well and in many ways would be hard to better.
