Uniform grouping of Leutnant Seebold, KIA Sirgalla, Narwa 1944
Spectacular uniform grouping named to Leutnant Seebold serving with Grenadier Regiment 44, 11 Infanterie Division, killed in action 26.3.1944 in Sirgalla, west of Narwa. He is buried in Jöhvi, Block 1 Row 21 Grave 1055. The grouping consists of the modified enlisted men M36 field blouse dated 1937, manufactured in Danzig. The garment is modified by a skilled tailor by means of adding a bottle green, pointed officer’s collar and insignia for a Leutnant. The breast is adorned with a Infanterie Sturmabzeichen by SchuCo and a unmarked Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz. There are a number of minor repairs to the tunic I have tried to photograph them as best as possible. The visor is a semi-crusher; a mix between a regular officer’s visor and a crusher which has a great look on a mannequin. The crusher has beautiful hand embroidered insignia which like all the other insignia in the grouping are period applied.
A beautiful and very interesting grouping that could be a good base for further research!
