    Default Swim suit?

    sorry if this is the wrong section, but it's so far off the wall, I don't know which section to put it in, but.................Has anyone seen one of these before? I've just been offered it, and have no idea on price, or what it is? First thought was a "National Savings suit" but they used a straight Hakenkreuz. This one is cantered. however I believe this was made prior 1929 by J.B.Lewis & Sons, Nottingham under their Meridian label...maybe they got an order from the Nazi Party before the patent ran out in 1929.....Lewis made the interlock under licence..Interlock having been patented in 1909 by Scott & Williams.Mother of pearl buttons on shoulder

    Anyone??
    Thanks

    I think you ought to model it for us Jonno, I bet you look a bit like an older version of Tom Daley.....

    I have the 2 volume set of "Sport in the Third Reich" and this is not in there, as they have several "bathing suit" type items within. Not sure if this was for a specific "sect" of the Military or Political - but would rather venture for "civilian attire?"

    However - my help only being its not in the book Sir......

    Ned, I look nothing like TD let alone an older one My thanks go out to Duff, for taking the time and Glenn for confirming what I originally thought. War savings, but I was a little confused as I thought that had finished by 1929.

    Maybe a swimming team club emblem, i know a few sports teams used the swastika in the early 20th century!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
