While under arrest and awaiting his war crimes trial, Donitz makes a request of an American officer. In part: "...Please, when I get my blue suit, I want my blue shirt there too. Now, I have no shirt at all, only underwear, but that does not close at the throat, and the blue suit is open at the chest..." Old tape remnants in margins, else very good.
