This is apparently a standard pattern used on a great number of
different types - note the absence of shoulder restraints which resulted
in many pilots getting seriously remodelled faces during forced landings


I don't think shoulder harnesses came in until the thirties or at least
the late twenties so most etched WW1 RFC/RNAS sets are suspect for
accuracy
