Similar to the men, but with lighter cloth, the Winter uniform of the MCWR consisted of forest green jacket, six gore skirt and long sleeve khaki skirt, worn with necktie. Sometimes mistaken for their WAC counterparts, women marines wore a visored bell crowned hat, but trimmed with a lipstick colored cord, which was a tad more stylish than those worn by the WACS, WAVES or SPARS. Over this they wore a heavy green overcoat and oxford shoes, over which they would don galoshes for wet weather.
