Denim Working Dress Uniform
Denim working dress and white cotton anti-flash hoods and gloves were among the day-to-day uniforms worn by Canadian sailors in the Korean War.
Dressed like a member of a gun crew, this mannequin holds a round of ammunition for a 4.5-inch gun. Denim's durability and ease of care made it an ideal working dress material. Fire-resistant anti-flash hoods and gloves helped protect against burns from flame and heat that might happen during combat. A steel helmet provided some protection against shell fragments from enemy coast artillery, which engaged Canadian ships on a number of occasions.
