RAF 1930 Pattern 'Teddy Bear' Flying Suit, named

A rare RAF 1930 Pattern 'Teddy Bear Suit' named to a Wing Commander.

Air Ministry Ref. No. 22C/53.

This early item of Flying Clothing was used, mainly by Bomber aircrew, during the first few years of WW2.

Initially produced as a cold weather liner for the 1930 pattern Flying Suit.
Made from brown simulated fur fabric, which buttoned inside the 30 pattern suit, and because of it's 'furry' appearance it was nick named a 'Teddy Bear Suit'.

Bomber Pilots and aircrew found the liner, inside the flying suit cumbersome, and some adapted it by adding a zipper to the front and turning it inside out to wear as a warm Flying suit on its own over the service dress uniform (see last photo).

This particular example has had this adaption (the zip can easily be removed).

The suit has the added bonus of being named to a Wing Commander Simpson.

W/C, J.H.T. Simpson DSO, AFC flew with RAF 60 & 205 Squadrons.
In 1942 he was promoted to Group Captain.

The suit is in a very good 'used' condition with a working 'Dot' zip.
A.M and Kings Crown stamped, and unfortunately with the item being worn inside out, the 'stitched on' label has been lost.
There are a couple of 'worn' areas on the suit where the fur is missing, but otherwise a very good example of a rare flying suit.
