Original U.S. WWII Navy Seabee First Class Motor Machinist Mate Crackerjack Uniform - As Seen in Book
Original Item: One-of-a-kind. This very U.S. Navy Seabees First Class Motor Machinist's Mate Crackerjack Uniform is featured on page 174 U.S. Naval Amphibious Forces (U.S. Navy Uniforms in World War II Series) by Jeff Warner. In fact this jacket was purchased by IMA from the estate of Mr. Warner along with much of his personal collection.
This is the uniform of a first class Motor Machinist's Mate with both the color Seabees shoulder patch and the CB letter distinguishing mark. This insignia arrangement was very common in 1945 at the close of the war. Note that the CB distinguishing mark is enclosed within a diamond border. Rather than removing the obsolete letter distinguishing marks, many men attached the new shoulder patch to their uniform and wore both Seabees insignia simultaneously, as seen here. (J. Warner)
