Scarce genuine WWII US G-1 parachute canopy, complete with its 24 panels and hangers. Manufactured by the Fox Chase Knitting Mills Inc. and dated June 1945. Markings are clearly visible. This type was compatible with most containers, particularly the A-4 and A-5 types, for loads up to 300 pounds. Yellow color would indicate rations.
