Jacket, Anti-gas, White, US Navy, D-Day
Scarce genuine WWII US Navy anti-gas suit jacket. On D-Day, sailors aboard ships wore these jackets in the standard white color. Sailors going ashore such as the 2nd, 6th and 7th and 2nd Naval Beach Battalions on Utah and Omaha would dye these with an OD color and impregnate them with anti-gas chemicals.
Very good condition. This is the correct version used in Normandy with large black buttons.
