The T5 Main and Reserve Parachutes as used by the Airborne in WWII


Recommended Posts

Harness & tray need to be cleaned up a little, but I'll leave that to a future new owner who has more experience so I don't make a meal of it!

Here are some pics of the canopy, very good condition, with only one little hole I found where the ropes were stored against it, and a couple of light stains. It honestly looks and feels like you could use it for a jump now without any dramas, amazing after all these years!

Lastly here are some pics of what I assume is the reserve chute which came together with the main. No front pack. It looks like it has had been used by the paratrooper as a pillow or similar from a couple of worn holes, and a large strip/s have been cut out of it for whatever reason- bandanna or something? Who knows...
