Luftwaffe Flying Gloves

Size 8. Fine grey soft leather gloves with a stiffer dark grey leather cuff section with a side gussett. Leather wrist strap with press stud fasteners. Unlined. Nicely marked inside with RB number and LBA proof stamps. 1944 dated. Overall condition is very good. They are supple and undamaged although a little soiled/marked in places. The wrist strap is a little stiff and the press studs and metal componants have surface corrosion. Whilst they would benefit from some light leather dressing these are in very good used condition. This pattern of glove was most popular with bomber and reconnaisance crews. See p 140 \'Luftwaffe Vs RAF\'. Stock code GA16080.
