RAF / RAE electrically heated flying gloves

Code: GADFGF1

RESERVED

Manufactured by Siebe Gorman & Co. Ltd.  Gloves, Flying, Electrically Heated, 24 Volt.  Stores reference 22c/107/8.  Size 9.  Mid forearm length chestnut brown suede gauntlets with elasticated cuff and an adjustable wrist strap with press stud fastening.  The glove wiring terminates at a black plastic 2-pin socket (stores reference 5c/457) which could be connected to the plug on an electrically wired thermally insulated 'Irvin' flying jacket.  A 'Lift-the-dot' fastener could also be attached to the metal 'post' of the same jacket to help keep it in place and prevent the plug from accidental release.  The suede is beautifully soft and really quite clean with large Air Ministry King's crown stamps.  Both straps are equally good and the wiring/plugs are complete.  The only downside is a small hole in the cuff of the right glove and minor damage to the finger on the left but overall condition is excellent.  Complete with issue labels.   Undoubtedly the rarest of all RAF gloves, so rare that this is probably the only chance you will have to own a true pair.  Stock code GADFGF1.
