Default Flight gloves bomber/airgunner.. !?

In several collections I've spotted the gauntlet leather gloves with seperate " trigger finger " as related to airgunner...

..., but are they ??

Any pics available where we can see these gloves in action ?

Jos.

I have never seen a leather pair dated later than 1939...perhaps only issued in the flight school??
