Type F1 anti exposure gloves
« on: November 01, 2016, 01:29:42 PM »
These gloves were to be worn with the TYPE R1 anti exposure  suit, which was standardised on 29th January 1945 . The suit when worn could provide up to 1 hours worth of protection at 28 degrees F and a lot longer if the wearer was in a life raft .

I came across these on Ebay when i couldnt sleep and got up for a cup of tea and scrolled through the new listings i follow and for $20 i couldnt resist !  ;D



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