Anyway, we have been working on putting together a WWII era navy shore patrol uniform. There are still a couple things missing; the black and white SP (shore patrol) armband for example. These are some photos we took last fall when it was still nice and warm outside.

|Playing dress up Navy style|
Here's a peak at some of his uniforms. The plastic tote is not ideal at all for textile storage but works for right now. Some time I will twist Cori's arm into writing a guest post or two. He could tell you way more about his uniform collection then I can. There are pieces that date from WWI up to the 1970s.

|Non-regulation "Liberty" uniform. I think this one is 1950s, not sure.|
This one is one of my favorites from the group. The sea bag is a reproduction but the uniform is all original 1940s vintage.
