61) A good original British military issue string vest. In excellent order with minor storage marks. These were issued to special forces, commandos, airborne troops etc. made from a continuous length of strong cord and designed not only to help keep the wearer warm but also to be easily unravelled and made into useful items, combined together to make a rope for climbing or pulling things, string for tying things. It looks small but will stretch a lot. It has its original fabric label dating it to 1942 and is marked as a size 3. The label markings are clearer to see with the naked eye than appear in the photos.
