WW2 USAAF 1944 shoulder "Y" harness

Recommended Posts

This just arrived today. This looks to be an unissued 1944 dated USAAF "Y" harness. These were used on a number of aircraft. These are harder to find than the lap belts (at least I don't come across them very often). They have inspection dates on then from sitting in storage. I have a few of these from 1944 and they all look the same.

These are the main ink stamps.

The all cotton construction and box X stitching is the hallmark of a WW2 era shoulder harness and also lap belt. Look at my other posts on lap belts.
