USN Uniform. WW2?


Recommended Posts

Hi. I found this USN uniform at a antique store today and was wondering if it is WW2. I looked up the ship U.S.S Rehoboth and found out that construction started on August 3, 1942 and was launched on November 8, 1942. It was commisioned as a seaplane tender from 1944 to 1947 then was commisioned again as a oceanographic survey ship from 1948 to 1970. I think its WW2 but not so sure. I asked the antique store to put it on hold for me until I found out if it is WW2.

 

Thank you.

Ship rockers came out in the 1960s and are still used. This one is probably from Vietnam or after.

Thank you for the information. Im not all that familiar with Navy uniforms so I wasnt sure if it could be possibly WW2.

Another thing to look for are the tags. Wwii uniforms just had naval clothing factory and some space for name and etc. That rate is post war also.

Looking for the following:

452nd and 447th Bomb Group items

Anything 12th Armored- especially uniforms

155th Assault Helicopter Company, Camp Coryell, or Ban Me Thuot Vietnam items[/center]


WWII US Navy Uniforms from the Battle Off Samar: USS Johnston DD-557, USS Hoel DD-553, USS Samuel B. Roberts DE-413, USS Heermann DD-532, USS Dennis DE-405, USS John C. Butler DE-339, USS Raymond DE-341, USS Fanshaw Bay St. Lo, White Plains, Kalinin Bay, Kitkun Bay and Gambier Bay...

That is a 1960s uniform, the contract on the trousers was issued in 1962.
