A survival vest worn by Cliff Tait during his round the world flight in an Airtourer ZK-CXU aircraft. He wore it at all times under the flight suit. It is a war surplus item. The orange dye stains on the vest are from a dye marker which dyes the water enabling search rescuers to find the lost person. The vest is made of cotton knit fabric and cotton tape at the shoulders. The singlet comprises knitted string and cotton knit shoulder straps. There are 3 deposits of a strong orange dye.
