TYPE A1 Mechanics sweater
« on: October 14, 2015, 12:13:21 PM »
The Type A1 mechanics sweater was introduced in 1926 and became obsolete in 1944 and were often used by flying personnel

Found this one on a internet auction site , quite poorly listed , but i dont mind giving it a new home  :)


2018 and STILL WANTED! a pair of RAF 1940 Patt boots and RAF life vest
