N016571 KdF "MONTE PASCOAL" CAP TALLEY. (KdF Mützenband)

BACKGROUND: Free Trade Unions in Germany were dissolved when the Nazis came to power in 1933, their members being absorbed into the newly created DAF, "Deutsche Arbeitsfront" (German Labor­front). The DAF was originally a sub­section of the NSDAP, but became an affiliated organization by 1936, and was the largest of all of the various Nazi organizations. The stated aims of the DAF were to create a national community of German professional and manual laborers, and to educate them in National Socialist principles. Membership was voluntary, but most workers chose to join to take advantage of the entertainment, sport, and travel opportunities provided by the attached KdF, "Kraft durch Freude" (Strength through Joy), welfare organization. The Monte Pascoal was owned by the Hamburg Südamerikanische Dampfschifffahrts­ Gesellschaft or HSDG line.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A " Donald Duck" style sailor's cap talley for the KdF liner Monte Pascoal of black rayon with machine woven Gothic script, "Monte Pascoal" with a flag, to one side, divided into four triangles with the letters "HSDG". The off center cap talley measuresapproximately 88cm x 3cm. There are some small holes and tearing along one end. Included is a post war, reproduction photo of the Monte Pascoal.
