• WWII USAAF B-4 Life Preserver 1943


    Standardized in 1942 this was issued to all US Aircrew, this particular one has a stamp of 1943 on it with a later inspection stamp of June 1944, probably in preparation for D Day. All the straps are present and correct with no fraying as is sometimes found. The manual inflation tubes and CO2 Bottle actuators are attached as well. There is some staining and marks etc which is not to be un expected considering the age of this item.  We do not clean items that come into stock as buyers have different preferences regarding looks in relation to original wear etc. This preserver is in very good condition and would  look great on your Army Air Force Mannequin or as  a Living History Prop.
