    Default WW2 artillery mittens

    I recently bought a large lot of British WW2 items, And amongst all of these items was this glove which I assume to be an artillery mitten as there was only one included. As I understand they would have used a mitten to remove the hot shell casings after it had been fired. However the only examples of British artillery mittens have been made of a different material and they also don't have the trigger fingers free as shown in the pictures.

    If anybody could tell me if these are maybe just a post war pattern or anything else I would appreciate it Click image for larger version.

    Canadian made gloves.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Certainly post war. Note the date now I have turned the pic around for you.

    Cheers, Ade.
