Does anyone know what air publications are responsible for outlining what equipment RAF aircrews used during the war preferably early war: 1939-1940?

Thanks in advance!
I do not know the specific manuals covering the gear you are inquiring about, but there is a short write-up on RAF aircrew flying clothing at the AeroSociety website:


It gives some pretty good info on types of equipment in use at different times. If you try looking up the individual pieces of equipment you may find some leads as to what manuals or indexes/stores reference numbers to investigate.
Looks to be like an excellent short summary
