    Hi René, these were certainly used by aircrew and Paratroopers in the aircraft. I think some books have kind of pushed that idea forward. "Airborne" will always sell an item. I think they saw use with tank crews too. But I suspect they were more of a general issue item?

    Either way it is a good item. I have actually used one at a living history event.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes it did! We were keen to see if it still worked, hence the test.

    Cheers, Ade.

    So it has. I had not noticed that. I wonder if the text changed and it was updated?

    Cheers, Ade.
