Hey! This is my WWII Seabee impression in honor of my Great-Grandfather. I have been doing a lot of research lately and this is his service uniform.

Please comment with corrections or advice!

Thanks

Looks great, love the dungarees!  Very typical of most of the Naval Shore forces for much of the war for sure and an often forgotten/overlooked service uniform.  I think this is great!

Thank you! I'm also planning on doing my other Great-Grandfather. He was an aviation ordnanceman on a hellcat torpedo bomber. That's gonna have to wait due to the price 😬.

The one sad thing about this is that you have great-grand parents who were WWII veterans. My Dad was one too. You make me feel old. But that's ok, I AM old.😁
