Title Kriegsmarine officer's summer tunic eagle
Nationality German
Period c 1933-45
Sold

This was worn on the white summer tunic in tropical areas to enable easy washing of the tunic without disfiguring the eagle. Typically Mediterranean submarine officer crew can be seen wearing it in contemporary illustrations.

This example, electro-gilt on tombak, has the bulk of its gilding intact, with a little wear to the highlights, especially on the face of the swastika. There is no maker mark and there is a brass pin at the rear with a small securing hook for the tunic. The condition is excellent for its age.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.
