Lovely complete set of the D-type electrically heated flying gloves. This lot consists of the leather outer gloves, the electrically heated black inners and finally the white silk first layer gloves. These type of gloves would of been worn with the heated 41 pattern sidcot suit like the one we have listed (19/10/21).
They attached with prestuds at the wrist. This set of gloves have definitely seen use and are well worn but in good original untouched condition. The leather gloves have general service wear to them but no major damage bar some drying, cracking, wear etc. Some light leather cream may improve the appearance.One glove is unfortunately missing their label but one does still have it's label. Nicely marked with size 9½, broad arrow and stores reference number 22C/771. The next pair in is the electrically heated black gloves.
They both have wear to the fabric but the right hand gloves shows some tears and holes. The material is actually not missing and some cosmetic repairs could be made.However this is how they came in original condition. Both are labelled and are A. M crown marked and size 10. Finally the first layer gloves are the soft silk material white inner gloves. Again the right hand glove suffering the most wear consistent with the wear to the black glove. The left does appear better. Interestingly they are slightly different sizes but appear to have been worn together. Both broad arrow, size marked and 1944 dated. All together they complete the D-type electrically heated glove set. Overall a good displayable pair of gloves, perfect for display in a RAF collection, museum display or reinactor display.
