Royal Canadian Navy Parka and Trousers
Royal Canadian Navy Parka and Trousers

This parka and trousers, issued to sailors to keep them warm, bear the initials of the Royal Canadian Navy.

Both the parka and the trousers are of a post-war pattern, and came with labels bearing detailed instructions on keeping them dry and usable, an important task in cold and wet conditions. The trousers were made in the early 1950s, but the parka dates from 1966, towards the end of the Royal Canadian Navy.
