Help me identify this WWII Rip Cord Pulling Ring


Recommended Posts

I got this from a collection that also had a grouping from a Caterpillar Club man. He was a B-17 Co-pilot in 8th Air Force. Is this the type Rip Cord Pulling Ring he would have worn as a Co-Pilot in a B-17?

Im going with the notion that it is not from the B8 style back parachute, nor do i think its from the B7 type parachute it doesnt show up in the class 13 catalog of 1943 and is not the same type as shown in Flight Gear by Matthieu Bianchi

 

i maybe wrong and stand corrected if i am
