USN029 Saluting U.S. Navy Officer



This officer is on ‘deck duty’ or perhaps in charge of the ‘Shore Patrol’ or leading a naval ‘landing party’.
He is in his everyday normal working uniform of double breasted, navy blue jacket and trousers, officers cap with white cap cover, white shirt, black tie and highly polished shoes. As officer-of-the-day he is also wearing the standard webbing waist belt and pistol holster carrying the Colt 1911 automatic pistol which served as the standard side arm for America’s armed forces for almost 75 years!
