Actually more modern than 60s we used them from 80s onwards and have still seen them around- there was a 1 day course to reset the co2 bottles and maintenance of them


the predecessors were the lifejacket RE seen in one of the pathe films of the 1947 floods http://www.britishpathe.com/video/fl...ry/1947+floods - look like padded flak jackets which were a sand coloured- the one you have is similar to but earlier than the one in the picture below
