Another classic deck jacket, and actually becoming remarkably hard to find in good condition! Around the tail end of 1955, these replaced the WW2 era N4 olive deck jackets and retain a lot of the same design, but updated with a much more comfortable lining. This particular is one of the earlier I've come across, date 1957 with the earlier Clothing Supply Office label and N140 stock code. Along with this is featured some amaxing handmade bullion patches, predominantly from USS Forrestal, and one from USS Seneca. It's named to a Creal Fillison Speiden, born Jan 12 1941, passed Dec 14 1995. Creal is buried in Nashville, Tenn. He's pictured, middle row, far right in an image from the Forrestal's 1951 cruisebook.
This is in used but solid vintage condition, there is a little fraying to the cuffs and the bullion patches, but otherwise great.
