  • US Navy Shore Leave Jersey Pre-WWII

    SKU: 15-UN-00009

    Customed tailored for the Far East assigned swabby.  Reverseable with a conventional-looking jersey on one side and a fancy inside for going to the clubs and bars on shore leave.  This one is very nicely tailored with fancy dragon cuffs.  Other collectors who have looked at this jersy think it is pre-WWII, likely made in China.  It may be possible to date and place the maker using the unique features of the dragon.  Rates are missing from the sleeves but are easily replaced.  Jersey is overall very good but there is some wear on the embroidered dragon cuffs.  Unusual and not oftern seen.
