    Pay no attention to the name in the cap, as sailors then and now have always had a habit of swiping each other's gear and uniform pieces. Guys used to write and stencil their names on everything they could lay their hands to, but it never made a bit of difference. Something as simple as a pillow case, I remember, some of them would have as many as 7 different inked out names on them with yet another written above it all. Things like dress blues caps were always fair game! He was probably lucky that he got out with one that fit him!
