Can anyone post pics of the various styles of blankets issued to the U.S. Navy from the 1930's to late WWII?

I'm sure there were various contracts and manufacturers during this period but, trying to ascertain which is pre-war and which is wartime/late WWII for those of use collecting gear for naval impressions out there, this would be helpful to know what is correct and what doesn't fly as period correct.

I've seen examples claimed to be WWII that are all white. The examples I've seen(all are white) but, the U.S. Navy's vary... one was with just a blue outlined "U.S.N.", another with a blue stripe and "U.S. Navy" embroidered and another with just a bold dark blue "U.S. Navy" on it. I've also heard individual issuings could vary greatly too. Some even being OD.

Any help for those of us WWII U.S. Navy living historians would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time and consideration,
