Thanks very much for that, what a superb booklet, and something that has answered a query Ive had for a long time. Is there any more to the publication that deals with the suits or packs?
There is an interesting flying suit on ebay at the moment that appears to be a post-war derivative of the Beadon. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Original-RAF-Flying-Suit-Outer-WW2-Jump-Suit-World-War_W0QQitemZ130249489465QQihZ003QQcategoryZ112473QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
Not a very good picture but it seems to have the same pockets upper and lower, cuffs belt arrangement and zips but with additional pockets on the front thigh area and a revised collar.
