Interesting Childs German Navy (Kriegsmarine) Suit, Named (Later K.I.A.)-This lot includes a specially made Navy jumper and short set along with a picture of the boy wearing the exact same set. We purchased this from a party in Germany who got it directly from the family. He later became an officer in the army and was killed in action. His name will be provided to the buyer. we are withholding this at the request of the family. He is shown at the right in the picture with his two brothers some time most likely in the late 1920's. The suit is made of a sweater material, dark blue in color. It is super clean and damage free with the exception of two small holes in the crotch of the pants. It includes a tie and a dickie (or bib). The label in the top says Bleyle's Sweater followed by "7/160". The initials of the boy, "K.St.", are seen in a tag below the label. A larger label is seen at the bottom inside of the top and in the waist of the pants. Excellent condition!
