    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.

    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


    Bottom line:
    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.
