Would have been nicer if the Navy PIO was a little less ME ME ME Navy concentric..

Question from a FOG: I noticed the hook-up D-rings appear to be on a single layer A7A strap attached to four flood mounts? (last pic)

As I remember it they were a doubled layered harness and used a much more complicated anchor system.

I'm sure at least one strap was attached to the pilots ankle, to guarantee flight orientation, stability, & troop moral?? :D
