>I am glad that someone seems to agree with my thoughts on British 
While researching the SE5a I thoght that wide lap belt in the bird was the
right way to go but the Consensus on the Aerodrome forum was the "Standard"
Sutton harness. Perhaps I and you are wrong as all photo etched stuff seems
to supply the Sutten rig for all British Aircraft? ie: Eduard Camel,Sopwith
Triplane, Sopwith Pup, and Part for the SE5a. Anyone else care to weigh in
on this?

Well, that would make RAF Hendon wrong too, since the wide lap-belt is 
what's in their half-covered Bristol fighter. Maybe the PE people get misled 
by retro-fitting of those types that saw post-war service?
