Were the life belts worn aboard the Britannic the same style/design as used aboard the Titanic? Also, do any such life jackets currently exist from the Britannic?

The life jackets would have been the same because they were used on her sister Titanic. There was nothing wrong with the way they worked on Titanic. The water was just too cold for the lifejackets to work effectively

They were probably the same, as the design was prescribed by the Board of Trade, right down to the number of threads per inch in the linen covers.
