RAF 1933 Pattern Flying Gauntlets
Gauntlets, Flying, 1933 Pattern. Stores reference 22c/269. Size 8.5. The leather is in excellent clean and supple condition showing only light use and wear. There is minor abrasion on the backs of the fingers/thumbs and some mildew marks. These will almost certainly clean off with the application of a light leather dressing. The colour match is very good but as usual, not perfect. Unusually these have matched contract numbers and are therefore a 'true' pair. Air Ministry King's crown and 1940 dates in each glove along with the original owner's name/number. Both zips have some soft verdigris deposits but these can be cleaned off with methylated spirits. Very good matching brass 'Lightning' zips - both complete with leather pull tabs. A nice pair of these Battle of Britain period gloves. Stock code GA20580.
