Are these Gloves Bundeswehr or NVA?
Hi all. I have two packs of these gloves, but I know nothing about them other than they are German. I assume they are some sort of underglove as the label reads Unterziehfaust- Handschuhe. I would like to know what side of the wall these were used on and if possible there use. Many thanks.

Indeed West German, dated 1984...
Thanks guys. Any idea why the gloves themselves are stamped 1948? I guess this could be a lot number or something?
Not sure what the 1948E represents. They look like winter gloves with the trigger finger.
I'm also interested to find out what that stamp means..possibly a lot no.?
They are indeed BW.....and as you say inner gloves cold weather inserts for ether the flecktarn or oliv mittens, the 1948E number is a manufacturers code for BW reference, the 11/84 is the date of manufacture, November 1984. A nice find !
Prost ! Steve.
