• WWII USAAF B-4 Life Preserver 1945


    WWII USAAF Type B-4 ‘Mae West’ Life Preserver. AN6519-1

    Standardized in 1942 this was issued to all US Aircrew, this particular one is dated  11/4/1945 and has the neck strap fitted, all other straps, manual inflation tubes and CO2 Bottle actuators present. There is some fraying to the neck strap and the item has some staining and could benefit from a clean. We do not clean items that come into stock as buyers have different preferences regarding looks in relation to original wear etc. The preserver would still look great on your Army Air Force Mannequin of for a Living History Prop.
