You can recover the concatenated contents of the files with gzip -d,
and you can recover the boundaries between the files
by decoding the output binary stream yourself
(please see Internet RFC 1952), separating each member
out, and then applying gzip -d separately to each member.

The names of the files are lost, though, since you specified --no-name.
