  10. 1912 WHITE STAR LINE ‘TITANIC’ ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF SYMPATHY

    mailed Tuesday April 23, 1912, little more than a week after the ‘Titanic’ sank, and only a few days after survivors arrived in New York. Card, no doubt sent in response to cabled messages, addressed to Brighton German Bank of Cincinnati, OH, and reads: ‘The White Star Line most gratefully acknowledges the expression of your deep sympathy, and shares with you profound sorrow for all to whom the loss of the S.S. “Titanic” has brought great bereavement.’

  13. Soviet Navy’s Pacific Fleet sailor in full dress.

    The telnyashka (Russian: тельня́шка) is a white undershirt horizontally striped in various colors, and dates back to the 19th century Tsarist Navy.

    It is an iconic uniform garment worn by the Russian Navy and the Russian  Naval Infantry (marines).

    The telnyashkas originated with distinctive striped blouses worn by the merchants and fishermen of Brittany.

    The fashion was later adopted and popularized by the French Navy and other navies of the pre-Dreadnought era.

    Telnyashka has become such evident symbol of masculinity in Soviet culture, that it is sported by dozens of popular non-military characters of the cinema and even children’ cartoons. There is a popular saying that describes the wearing of telnyashkas as an indicator of a “real man”; "We are few in number, but we wear telnyashkas!"
