K007776 EM/NCO'S SHIRT COLLAR DICKIE. (Exerzierkragen)

BACKGROUND: German Naval uniforms and headgear were based on traditional designs that date back to the creation of the Prussian Navy in 1848, and although the uniforms and headgear did evolve during the interim years, many items used during the Third Reich would still have been quite recognizable to the Imperial sailor. The blue and white jumper shirts were a staple uniform item for all EM/NCO personnel and followed the basic design of the Imperial German Navy and Reichsmarine blue and white jumper shirts. The white jumper shirts were intended for wear in tropical climates or with the summer walking out dress while the navy blue shirts were utilized for everyday wear. Besides the jumper shirts the Kriegsmarine utilized a variety of work/drill shirts for junior NCOís and EMís that were generally worn in barracks and onboard for regular duties. When order the blue jumper shirts and the work/drill shirts were worn with a separate removable collar dickie that resembled the integral collar on the white jumper shirts.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: The collar dickie consists of a rectangular, white cotton construction, breast and back panels with a fold back mid-blue "nankeen" collar. The back panel has a tie tape to each bottom corner and the breast panel has two, small, tie tape loops allowing the dickie it to be tied around the wearerís body underneath his shirt with the fold back collar hanging over the exterior back of the shirt. When the collar is folded back in the proper position it creates a "V" slash at the forward neckline. The upper breast panel also has two tie tapes situated at the top edges of the "V" slash to secure the neckerchief to the dickie. The fold back collar has three roughly, 5mm wide, parallel white cotton strips machine stitched near all three outer edges. Original owners name tag present.    (Ex Philippe Gillain Collection)
