Uniform, Reverend Ernest Gordon Blair Foote
Ernest Gordon Blair Foote, a senior Protestant chaplain in the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN), wore this uniform in the post-war period.
The clerical collar denotes Foote's calling, while the medal ribbons on his jacket testify to service during the Second World War, the Korean War, and afterwards.

Remaining in the military after the war, Foote ultimately became the Chaplain General (Protestant) of the Canadian Forces.
