Cap, Officer, USN, White, Named
Nice genuine WWII US Navy officer's white cap, to be worn with the white uniform, complete with cap badge, chinstrap and original buttons. Manufactured by Scott & Company, Limited, Boston. Size 7.
The name tag still present inside indicates that this cap belonged to Ensign J. W. Hursh (United States Naval Reserve), from Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine.
These details may correspond to John Woodworth Hursh, born in Duluth, Minnesota on October 8, 1920 and deceased in Needham, Massachussets on February 19, 1997, who was a Navy reserve officer from 1943 to 1945.
