Recommended Posts

Just came across this and thought that it'd be another cool reenactment shot (next time you happen to be in your USMC WM uniform... and a horse is nearby...)

Great photo! Looks like one of the wartime shots made to show women in the different services. Well posed and believable.

I'm curious, is it correct for the cadet nurse to the left to be wearing a Navy officer's hat insignia with that uniform?

. Not Navy, U.S. Public Health Service. Very nice

some of the items yes very difficult! I look everyday though so that helps and I do get lucky sometimes at antique shops.

It sure is.

Very informative as well (and nice to look at). ;)

 

I bet it is difficult to find these items?
