Air Mechanic’s Tropical Working Dress, Royal Naval Air Service

Serial No: N/A
Period: WWI

Photographs of the time suggest that comfort and convenience was far more important than neatness and elegance when working in hot climates. Most of this uniform belonged to Air Mechanic 1st Class George Lloyd Carter who served as an Air Frame Fitter in southern Italy and Mudros in the Eastern Mediterranean.

This item is on display in The First World War in the Air 1914–1918 exhibition in Hangar 2.
