    1980's style aircrew issue used by helicopter aircrew from all the services. Yours are marked RM meaning it was probably one of the Commando Helicopter Force squadrons, perhaps 3 Brigade Air Squadron (now 847) based at RNAS Yeovilton aka HMS Heron.

    Never seen RM slides before and is it just me or does the RM look like its been done with a black marker or something? Might be wrong.

    Nice, not easy to get and often not cheap.

    Been a few jackets on Ebay lately,all in the £10-£15 price range unlike the £40-£50 they used to make.

    Not sure what type is in the picture but found these in seconds and that was looking for aircrew,most others are not described as such.
