    Dress blues, whites, and a nice "Shellback" ceremony uniform. These are marked to several sailors, Boychuck, Adams, but the last owner was Yoeman 3rd Class Evan Philip Comer. Comer enlisted May 22, 1945 in Nashville, TN at the Naval Reserve Center. He was aboard the LCI(L) 329 in mid-45 before transfering to the LST-1090(USS Russell County) where he finished out the war before leaving at Portsmouth, Oregon in 46. Comer took part in mainly occupation duties from what I can find. These are his older uniforms from mid-late 45 before his promotion to Yn3c.

    Dress hats. The so called "Donald Duck" cap. These are wartime type with US Navy tallies instead of ship names. One has a woven tally, the other is painted.

    Summer whites. The Amphibious Forces patch is a rarer red HBT twill variation. Blue stripe on shoulder designates a 'Deck' rated sailor.

    A nice set of whites used during a 'Shellback Ceremony". This is the 1st set I've ever owned. Jumper is graffittied with Royal Cop and skull and cross bones, pants have hash marks on them.
