BACKGROUND: The Kriegsmarine adopted wear of the new national eagle on the front of the headgear and the right breast of the uniform on March 24TH 1934.

Of Note: Additional regulations of October 19TH 1936 altered the white "jumper" shirt machine embroidered eagle to a machine woven eagle for the duration of the war.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Early machine embroidered national eagle in cornflower blue cotton threads on a cut-out woven white linen factory roll base.
