David McMillan's Merchant Navy Uniform
David McMillan's Merchant Navy Uniform

This uniform belonged to David McMillan, one of the radio officers aboard SS Stanley Park.

Although a postwar example made in 1948, it is similar to wartime uniforms. In addition to the rank insignia on the sleeves, it also bears the ribbons for two medals, the 1939-1945 Star and the War Medal. During the war, such uniforms would generally have been worn for going ashore, or on special occasions while afloat. Other types of uniforms and even more casual clothing were usually worn while at sea.
