I found this in the bottom of a box full of damaged Navy uniforms I got from the estate auction of a local Navy vet this weekend. It is named multiple times, on both the belt and the whistle. Not only that, but he scratched "USS Parle DE-708" on the whistle as well. The belt is in good shape, and the tubes only have some minor cracking. Interestingly, the original CO2 canisters were inside, never used. I have taken them out and put them aside. Enjoy:

Hello,

 

very nice USN contract inflatable belt ... most belts are TC contracts (Transportation Corps), the Navy ones are not so easy to spot !!
