    Hi guys,
    I just got the above USS Kentucky group records back from ARC. He went in 1899 and was honorably discharge in 1903.

    Pick up this hat from a buddy this past week. USS LAMBERTON and the ship was Destroyer post ww1.

    Those are amazing. I really want to find a USS New Jersey some day. My grandfather served on the USS New Jersey in WWII. He and my grandmother were tight for cash shortly after so they sold his uniform to someone who took off with it and never paid them. Someday when I get to truly start my collection I will try and find one. For now I still have his seabees pennant, seabees pin, and a couple other things.

    Hi Jason,

    I actually believe these aprons were issued to Pacific natives who were recruited to fill in positions on the U.S. ships - cooking, cleaning etc.. I could be wrong, but they appear to have been decorated with quite a bit of pride and in patriotic colors. Either way, good looking pieces!

    That is an OUTSTANDING collection you have there navycollector or should I say Cheif( or is that just your Avatar?) I like the USS Saratoga cover. I was stationed at the Philadelphia Naval Yard at the recruiter HQ there for the Marine Corps in 80-81 while it was in dry dock. That was one Big Ass carrier. You could play 3 games of football on that deck with out interfering with the other teams!!
    The other question I have is what Naval Hospital and what Naval Training Base are the other cover's for?
    You got yourself a beautiful collection!! Thanks for sharing.

    Hi,
    These come up on ebay , try searching by ships name or flat hat. Some times you have to be creative with your searches.

    Hi Phil,
    I'm just a collector of navy items. I start out early collecting rating badges as a young kid. Later on branch out to everything else.
    If the hat do not say a certain ship or area then i'm not sure. Maybe the tallies were made like that for any naval hospital or training base.

    Glad you like the collection,

    Hi all,

    This seems to be the best thread on the net on this subject. I'm wondering if anyone here has any idea of when this hatband was used. I found it in the old family bible, but oddly, I've accounted for everyone and I don't think anyone in this part of the family was in the Navy. It was used as a bookmark - not sure if it was actually from a family member or just a friend's.

    Anyways, it's gold lettering on blue silk. It's not embroidered. There is a slight reverse indentation seen from the back. I'm not sure how this was made, but there must have been some raised letters they laid this on and used to get the gold paint on.

    Any ideas would be appreciated. I can see from the net that there was a USS Connecticut during the Civil War and another in the early 1900's.

    Thanks,
    Tim
