Historical Boys' Uniforms

Figure 1.--The NAZIs abolished the German Scout movement, but used the Scouts as a prototype in many ways.

After working on the expanded Historic Boys' Clothing Website for several months, I can tell that I will soon run out of room. Therefore I have created a separate site just for the uniforms worn by boys in varius youth groups. There is some basic information at this web site on the Boys' Brigade and the Scouts at this web site, but the detailed information on each group will be at a new Historic Boys' Uniform Site. Please contact the Web Master for additional information.

There were many youth organiztions in Fascist countries besides just the Hitlaer Youth innGermany. Groups exisred in Itlay, Spain, other European countries and Imperial Japan before the War. I have managed to acquire some information on Italy, but little on the other countries so far.

If you have any information on these groups or any other youth organizations not discussed here, plese let me know so I can add information on additional groups.

Figure 2.--Since the 1950s some of the uniformed youth groups have become mixed boys and girls groups.

Access to the Historical Boys uniform is available to all regular HBC contributord or to those who contribute information on boys uniformned groups. For details, contact the HBC Web Master.
