Retro Wednesday

From AT1:
... aviation ordancemen and aircrew helping to load ammo belts for aircraft. I have no idea which ship this was shot on, but the time frame is approximately early 1950. Interesting to note the blue shirt in the foreground is wearing a old school dungarees with his name stenciled across the back of the shirt, also on his head is the old cloth flight deck helmet. Also in the background near who I the officer in khakis with the combination cover (who I suspect is CAG Gunnery Officer) is a blue shirt wearing a white cover. That makes me kind of wish we could go back to wearing a white cover with our utilities.
