And the US 'blueberry' Navy camo is *dangerous* because you fall in, you
blend quite well. Personally, if my ass has fallen overboard, I want
people to be able to find and rescue me!
Rob's favorite uniform was the classic 'swabbie' - dungaree [sort of
bell bottom blue jeans] with a blue chambray work shirt.
short sleeve, long sleeve and whites all working rather than dress
uniforms ... unfortunately since 1983 the dress white cracker jacks were
made of synthetic instead of cotton.
