Not CRO kit from one of there many rescues up there? Or one of their members personal kit so try at the CRO hut?
Anything I say is represents my own opinion and not that of a any club/organisation that I am a member of (unless its good of course)

Thanks Alex - it's not marked "CRO".

Good point though; if no-one claims it I could wave it around the Clapham depot next time I'm in there.

I reckon it's been left there as a prank to see how long some well-meaning person will attempt to return it to its rightful owner. I'd just get it in the tackle bag if I were you. Or send it to the National Museum of Vintage Caving Equipment (aka Mark Wright) to see if they can work out whether it's pre or post-war at least :)

If it's not claimed soon it might be in danger of getting converted into a lightweight diving harness for sumps down potholes . . . .    ;)

Or maybe converted into something for keeping socks up while wearing wellies...
I'm not a complete idiot: some parts are missing!

Looks surprisingly similar to this thing found under a mattress at the Wessex some years back.....

The red & blue item looks similar to the chest harness that Dragon caving used to make. It  was the most comfortable chest harness I've ever had. Depends a lot on your shape/size though!

Well done Idris - yes, it is a Dragon harness.

You don't get a prize but well done.   ;)
