WW2 Royal Air Force RAF 1941 Pattern Flying Gauntlets Gloves. Genuine 1941 pattern flying gauntlets originally owned by a pilot or comber crew member who served with the Royal Air Force during the Second World War.
These type of gloves were so highly prized that during manufacture the left and right gloves were made at separate locations to prevent theft, this would account for so many mismatching pairs. This pair however, are a matching set, both are size 9, match in colour and have the same stamps to the interior.Each gloves has an Air Ministry stamp and matching RAF personnel serial number which looks to be 180860 (see pictures). The gloves are in overall good clean condition with some wear from use. The only defect is the zipper tab is missing from the right glove (see pictures).
