RAF, Air Crew Heated Socks

A pair of Electrically Heated RAF Air Crew Socks/Bootees.

These ankle length, felt lined socks are fitted with an electrically heated element.

They were worn over the thick woollen air crew socks and then inside the flying boots.

A couple of snap connectors at the rear connect to the aircraft electrical system via a wire cable, to heat the socks.

This pair are made of a green denim outer, cream fur inner, and have Air Ministry labels and a silk Windak clothing Manufacturing label.

In an 'un-used' condition.
