Gray Navy cpo jacket and pistol holster

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I bought these items on ebay a week or two ago. There was more of his uniform up for sale but settled for this one. I won his pistol holster also, in the auction it said it was for a .45 cal. The jacket and holster has his name on. The holster had a tag on it. Here's a link with a little information a forum member gave me. Can anyone find any other info on this guy.

Nice. We do know these were authorized during WW2 only, so he was not on the ill-fated USS Thresher that sank later on.

Navyman, Thats a nice grouping... Too bad they were split apart though. I had been watching these auctions and wondered if anyone of the forum ended up with them. I have a just post war CPO uniform to a Thresher veteran that did 15 war patrols. i've done a bit of research on the ship. They had some interesting patrols! FYI they were attacked by a DE and a Patrol plane's depth Bombs on Dec 7&8th 1941 off Pearl trying to return to base. She was also an escort to the Enterprise and Hornet during the Tokoyo Raid.

Very nice. You don't see the grays worn too much as they had a short "life span' in the Navy.

Thanks for the information, Yes it was a shame as you probably know there was two more gray jackets and a khaki jacket and his undress whites when he was a first class.

Thanks Dan,

I thought about going after that khaki cpo jacket. Probably should have, OH WELL. I went after this one because I thought this one out of the three gray ones look in the best shape even though the buttons are missing. I have some but I will have to find the pocket buttons.

Dan,

That's O.K. you don't have to be sorry it's a auction and besides no one knows who bidding on the items since ebay hides the handle names.

I have someone else looking but would be interested if you have some .

Thanks,

Jason
