New Old Stock Life Preserver


Recommended Posts

Recently acquired a NOS Navy type LPU-21B/P life preserver. Still possessed both accessory pockets for the Dye Marker and Flares, and came unpacked. Fortunately I was able to find the corresponding NAVAIR manual on how to pack it and get it ready for display.

I attached this LPU to a modified Army SRU-21/P survival vest like the TF-160 guys used to wear:
