WW2 POW Items & Groupings
This is an incredible find for those of you that collect POW items. This shirt/gown is marked "Kreigsgefangorer" which means "Prisoner of War" and also has the number "4" on the front. It looks to me like a shirt/gown that would be worn in the Camp Hospital and is made from a searsucker type of linen. In just near mint condition, when does something like this ever hit the market. It looks like it was never worn.
Here is a neat little grouping to a pilot with the 719th BS, 449th Bomb Group, 15th AAF that was shot down off the coast of Yugoslavia, Island of Vis. On the back of one of the photo's is the following: 5/1/45 Barth, Germany Stalag Luft 1. Included are 2" & 3" pilot wings, air cadet patch and hat insignia, officer cap insignia, leather name tag "J. French" and a super looking theater made, leather squadron patch for the 719th Bomb Squadron.
