I am asking if this one glove (other one is missing) is a Luftwaffe glove or is it a motorcycle glove. From what can be made out it is marked "Zarslorges cha 76" and "Fl. H Gabli"...I only have one photo and will be curious when I see it if the left glove is found.

I own this glove and curious what people think? I hope the left one turns up
No idea why the photos are upside down BTW
Looks like they are stamped 'Fl. H (+something),' which might indicate 'Flieger Handschuhen' (pilots gloves).
Whether or not they are a genuine item or not, I cant say.
A brief search turned up the following. Maybe this can help you
Luftwaffe Pilot Gloves???? - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums
Ive also seen references to Ro Co being for the firm Rubery Owen & Co with items (Brodie helmets etc) marked with Ro Co.
Rubery Owen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
1.Either British gloves falsely marked.
2.Contract of gloves going to Germany (unlikely).
3.Or retrofitted 'Ro Co' marked button on a German glove.
I find 2 & 3 unlikely. How ever, I know nothing about these gloves apart from the above, so please await the opinion of others with more knowledge about these gloves.
I see them referred to as being German gloves on several sites.
An esteemed member from this forum also posts in one of the above links.
Thanks Scout for the links!
