Fantastic Luftwaffe Battle of Britain aircrew chest-parachute and pack complete.

 

An absolutely superb and complete Luftwaffe chest-type parachute, comprising the pack and its original silk canopy, both marked with the same serial number and date of manufacture (December 1937) and date of checking (September 1940). Dates correspond perfectly for use in the Battle of Britain! incredible find! Pack is fitted with correct nickel plated D-ring and short ripcord/release with pins, attaching rings for clipping to harness and bungee cords (some have lost a bit of stretch).  Pack shows some wear externally and label has minor tears but no loss and all markings are perfectly legible. When found, pack had been deployed but has been professionally repacked as seen i last photos showing markings on silk and canopy laid out for inspection. (It goes without saying you can't jump with this - but it IS complete).
