Rare Ww2 German Reversible Parka (white/camo) From Parachute Regt Veteran For Sale
A RARE German World War two reversible jacket/parka in white/camouflage rain pattern which wasgivento me when I was a child and lived in Eastbourne, East Sussex by a friend of the family, Doctor Peter Smith. He was apparently at Arnhem in 1944 and captured by the Germans, being awarded a Mention inDispatchesduring his internment. In later life he worked at Eastbourne district general hospital and at one point operated on my mother! He told me that he had worn this coat after being released from captivity and walking back to the West, I cannot prove this unfortunately, but he certainly wore it when he went crabbing post war!! Could do with a good wash/clean...but I am nervous to do that and will leave it to the experts. Very comfortable and very heavy , guessing a size large.Smith, Peter (1916-1995)Epsom College: 1925-1934 PETER SMITH (1916-1995). M.B., B.S. (Lond.), F.R.C.S. (Eng.) [Epsom College 1925-1934. Cricket XI] was the son of Dr P. W.W. Smith, of Newington Causeway, South London. He received his medical education at St Thomas’s Hospital, and wasappointed Consultant General Surgeon at Eastbourne (1951-1976). During the Second World War he served in theR.A.M.C. (1941-1946), in North Africa, and Southern Italy, before going to Arnhem in 1944. When taken prisoner hevolunteered to remain with his men in Stalag 11B, Germany. He was mentioned in dispatches. I am selling all the items he gave me, as they are sat in cupboards and never see the light of day, which is a real pity. The red beret listedseparatelywas what he wore going into Arnhem apparently. He served as a doctor/surgeon in the RAMC attached to the Airborne division. I will start at 99p only, but worth much, much more, check the other items. Postage MUST be tracked. If postage works out less than anticipated, I will refund thedifference.On 12-Jul-13 at 16:11:16 BST, seller added the following information:
I have since been informed by another member that no POW's walked back from captivity, thought I should add this!!
