WWII Winter Navy Jacket?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the additional comments. My FIL was a crash boat captain in WWII until he transferred to a destroyer at wars end. He may have been issued or purchased the coat while he was at Patuxent.  He said that the wood hulled ships were having problems with the ice in the bay or river and they took them down to Pensacola to be retrofitted with (I believe) copper plating (sheathing)  on the hull.
