JACKETS

TYPE N-1 DECK NAVY

TYPE N-1 DECK NAVY

Type N-1 jacket was originally designed in the mid-1940’s as a three-piece suit consisting of trousers, jacket and helmet.

The material for the outer shell was a durable cotton grosgrain - "Jungle Cloth", and the lining is a double-faced alpaca-and-wool pile.

This is the original 1st version - navy blue. It was produced only for a short time and in very small numbers before being superseded in 1944 by a 2nd version which was produced in a khaki shade.
