Flight Suit Development - 1934 (cont'd)


Flight Protective Combination Suit for Summer Use, Model KW So/34

Flieger-Schutzanzug für Sommer - Baumuster KW So/34

"Salt & Pepper" Sommerfliegerkombi


Paralleling the development of the winter overwater combination suit was a suit intended for summer and warm weather use. Constructed of unlined, heavy weight, brown and white flecked linen material, it was in almost every respect identical to its winter counterpart with the exception of the material used in its construction.

No specimens, or photographs, of this suit in its earliest production configuration are known to the author.
