1940 Dated! RAF Sidcot Flying Suit - BATTLE OF BRI

An Original Battle of Britain dated Flying Suit which raises more questions than answers.....
Bought from France, by all accounts the Suit was rescued from a French Military Museum last year but that is all I can tell you. The condition is poor with numerous hand stitched repairs, so I can only assume it was repaired for Museum display?

It is named to "MORGAN 1412375" and I can only assume the reason the Suit still exists lies behind its History and not the condition. Any other piece of kit in it's pre-repair state was likely to have been burned rather than saved.
