WW2 Navy Fireman's Jumper with ZIPPERS

Recommended Posts

Saw this jumper while I was out. What threw me was the zippers. Has anyone seen this type of modification? I've seen them on the edge of the sleeves and up under the arm pits, but never down the front. What cha think?   







I "primarily" collect Gulf War 1 patches. All branches (USA, USAF,USN, USMC & USCG) and ALL Countries..
US - Op.'s Desert Shield / Storm / Provide Comfort /Some Southern Watch - F-4G's Wild Weasels
UK - Op.'s Granby / Sabre / Warden
Canadian - Op. Desert Storm / Op. Friction
French - Daguet / Aconit
Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, South Korea, etc.
Looking for the oddities, including unfinished & flaws
I HAVE EXTRA's!! Will trade as well.

This was a very common modification to convert a jumper, into a civilian jacket. Done mostly in the 1950s early 1960s. So, while this jumper may have started life as a USN uniform, it was “Discharged to “Civie Street” to become a jacket.
