M-1949 U.S. Army gloves
« on: October 25, 2017, 09:24:39 AM »
I've been looking around along time for a pair of affordable and decent shaped M-1949 U.S. Army gloves.
Finally found a pair, German eBay of all places. Never been issued, the gloves still tied together. Cost me close to $11.  ;)

I used the M1950 gloves 'til the end in '75.  Pretty hard to find now in good condition and affordable. Like the attachment below.
Here's a different sort of M1950 gloves. I might settle for a pair of these. ;)
