Uniform, Chief Petty Officer Eleanor Abra
Eleanor Abra, a naval reservist, was issued this pre-unification style of naval uniform in 1973.
Abra, who served in HMCS Carleton, the naval reserve unit in Ottawa, Ontario, received a dark blue uniform of a pattern introduced in 1957. The jacket itself dates to that year, while the skirt and other pieces were made at later dates. Although the Royal Canadian Navy became part of the Canadian Forces in 1968, with its distinctive uniforms being replaced by a green uniform common to all three services, the naval reserves were slower to make the change.
