USN flying gloves that where worn by Lt. O'Flaherty in the Hollywood film Midway.
Lt. O'Flaherty was a pilot from the USS Enterprise and was shot down and captured by the Japanese with Aviation Machinist mate Bruno Gaido. They where both interrogated by the Japanese before the Japanese drowned them.
These are his flight gloves that he wore during filming.
The leather gloves have USN stamped on the back and have been given a worn look to them by the costume department.
Gloves are not marked to O'Flaherty but they came in a bag with the O'Flaherty that we have including his dog tags.
The film company commissioned a small quantity of USN flight gloves to be made by a top Hollywood costume supplier. Original gloves are rare to find and these are made using top quality leather.
