RAF 50s flight suits wanted

Post by Andybell »

Hi there

I’m taking part in the queens jubilee parade in June and I’m desperately seeking a flying suit in a size 7 or 8. I’m looking for a MK4,MK2,MK1 or 51 pattern suit in good condition to fit me. Im also after leg garters from the 50s or 60s and any other bits and pieces from the era. If anyone has any for sale I would love to hear from you.

I never understood RAF clothing sizes. Could you explain "Sizes 7 or 8" in layman's terms ie, height, chest etc in inches or cms. It may help others to understand your requirements.

Hi Terry

I managed to find a 51 pattern suit in a size 7 which fitted my 6ft 2 frame fine. The jubilee parade has been and gone but I’m still looking for any flying clothing people are disposing of from the 50s and 60s . If anyone has any bits please feel free to message me .
