Original WW2 USAAF AN-6550 / AN-S-31 Flight Suit

Code: 11482


An original WW2 US AN-S-31 Flight Suit made from a light green gaberdine and in a small size.

This pattern of flight suit was standardised in 1943 and was issued to aviators in both the United States Army Air Force as well as the United States Navy. It saw widespread issue throughout the Second World War in many theatres and was replaced at the very end of the war with the L-1, making this a genuine wartime item.

The suit is made from a light green coloured gaberdine and features a two way brass 'Conmar' branded zip which closes the front of the suit. The chest bares buttoning patch pockets with two more similar pockets to the bottom of each leg. Ankle tabs can be found below these whilst belt loops are present at the waist. Sadly the original belt is no longer with the suit.

The suit is in well worn, distressed condition with lots of signs of wear, use and age. The zip functions as it should and it is still completely wearable but please study the pictures to get the best possible idea of condition.

All in all a reasonable example of this wartime pattern of suit which would be good for re-enactment or as part of an aviation collection.
