Sailor's Uniform, mid-1960s
This sailor's uniform from the mid-1960s was among the last issued by the Royal Canadian Navy.
Although still made of dark blue wool, it incorporated post-war changes like a zippered fly to replace the buttoned drop front on the trousers. Manufactured in 1966 and 1967, its various elements were issued near the end of the existence of the Royal Canadian Navy, just before its transformation into part of the Canadian Forces. Within a few years, such traditional attire would be replaced with a green tri-service uniform common to navy, army, and air force.
