I believe they carried their flight suit, and sometimes a life jacket, commonly called a 'Mae West'. From scenes in the Battle Of Britain film (1970) The pilots had oxygen masks , with radio leads attatched, and goggles, all of which would be readied before going into battle. The pilot would also carry a revolver or pistol, though not all pilots did so. They would carry a parachute for bailing out as well. Maps and other documents were sometimes carried. Of course it varied depending on the mission.
