    I think that is a stretch on the part of the seller.... just because they are dirty on the palm? I have several sets of artillery gloves if that is the criteria

    And some socks, boxer shorts.....

    Default NOT Russian Artillery Mittens??

    I got the photos, they aren't Russian by the stamp, perhaps that arrow is British as I've seen on leather cases?

    As I suspected, these are British.

    Cheers, Ade.
