N023077 HJ/DJ SERVICE SHIRT. (Diensthemd)

BACKGROUND: The Hitler Youth may be traced back to March of 1922, with the formation of the "Jugendbund der NSDAP" (Youth-league of-the NSDAP), under control of the SA. In April of 1924 the "Jugendbund der NSDAP" was renamed "Grossdeutsche Jugendbewegung" (Greater-german Youth-movement), and in July of 1926 the "Grossdeutsche Jugendbewegung" was officially renamed "Hitlerjugend Bund der deutschen Arbeiterjugend" (Hitler-youth League of-the german Worker-youth). Prior to 1925, an assortment of uniform items were worn by "Hitler Jugend" members, mainly consisting of a white shirt and HJ armband. In an attempt to associate themselves more closely with the Nazi Party, the HJ adopted the NSDAP brown shirt in 1925. In August of 1935 the 1933 pattern HJ/DJ service shirt was replaced with a waist-length blouse, constructed of a heavier cotton twill, being more of a tunic than a shirt.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Tan-colored cotton twill, long-sleeved, three-quarter-length pull-over shirt with a three button front with a lay down collar. A pleated patch pocket with a scalloped button-down flap, is to each breast, as well as, fold-back, pleated French cuffs. The buttons to the cuffs, pockets and front closure are all of light brown bakelite, upon each of whose convex surfaces are four decorative divisions, simulating interwoven strips of leather which are original to the shirt. The chest measures approximately 32". Original HJ/RZM tag present.
