1938 Sommerfliegerkombi - Rear


Though marked "L.B.A.S.39", this Kombi was manufactured by Karl Heisler of Berlin in December of 1938, evidence that the LBA stamp can follow a garment's manufacture by an considerable period.  The garment also documents that manufacturers produced suits with the quick release mechanism during late 1938, proving that the mechanism predated the war by a considerable period of time.  Note that the small diagonal access zipper is still present, which documents the likely elimination of that feature sometime during 1939.
