  1. No comments ? this film is a classic. I wish I could find Sarsi.
  2. A commissioning pennant flies the whole time a vessel is in commission .
  3. I should have noted that I would love to see the back of this uniform and while not super valuable it is very collectable and no doubt there is a collector who is missing it in his collection.
  4. You have to look at this jumper as a whole: 1) The SSS 2) The community strip and I am surprised that the state strip is missing but this is common. 3) All of the piping is reduced to Two lines if it was Navy it could have two on the cuff and three on the flap 4) Sadly you did not show the back as the stars are most likely removed and or covered by bugs ( little sea scout emblems or missing altogether ) 5) it is common were military uniforms are a close match to see them used as BSA uniforms, as to the comment on campaign hats the Boy Scouts had official authorized uniform items from the very beginning of every program they rolled out and it was always stated that to be in uniform you must be wearing Official BSA gear. There was a grey period early were you may have worn what was available but in an effort to copy the British Boy Scout program not the US Army
  5. Suppose you can use what you want but smell Zippo fluid and smell Naphtha
  6. This was one more story in an amazing story of our Navy during the Cold War
  7. Just pulled these out for comparison and maybe I am off on this one but if it was in my collection I would call it 1920's
  8. Others may argue this but it seems that after WW1 the body of the eagle straightens up and the shield cut of the patch becomes the clipped upper corners.
  9. This is a great topic and nothing...... Makes me feel like a 2Kilo gangster.
  10. Filling a need when the system cannot, some times a 2Kilo and a 2Lima just don't get it done.
  11. Nothing to show but as an HTFN I held one or two COB's hostage to the Comshaw system on the Hunley
  12. Boat Drill Instructors and Boat Carpenters
  13. Are all three jumpers the same? What are the chevrons on the rank patch made of wool or twill ?
  14. I knew it was short lived but you would think there were more out there, did this reg apply to USCG also?
  15. No label and yes I own it.
  16. Any one else have a CPO shirt like this? Had it a while but I do not recall seeing others.
  17. Chiefs did not wear this,it is what is referred to as a middy made for a lady. However , it looks like a fairly early one and may have been an actual uniform minus the nice looking Master at Arms patch.
  18. I believe they look like Molders Boots ( worn in foundry) they are easy to get off in an emergency. I wore a more modern version in the Navy in the early 80s and they were issued.
