Most of us are familiar with the kapok pads used in the '32 and '41 patten mae wests. However, I have never seen any of the type used in the Taylor bouyancy suit, the yellow bulky flying suit worn by air force gunners. The suit itself was filled with kapok, but there were pockets at the back of the neck, chest and legs to take additional pads. Does anybody have any, or illustrations of any, and what form do they take?
