    I have no Idea Gary, there are no markings/stamps at all.

    That is a real nice piece of flight gear.

    I think this one is an RAF one but I'm sure somebody will confirm that as I might be wrong.
    Still it's a nice straight looking one and an item that's getting harder and harder to get hold of.

    Its a very nice piece , I doubt its WW2 as it has no markings , but thats not meaning to denigrate from it at all is very nice

    Nothing wrong with it at all its just post war period manufacture thus not stamped .

    Thanks for the replies Guy's never knew the RAF used them! For how long after the war were they manufactured?
