Flight Nurse's Uniform
.
A special uniform for Navy flight nurses was first issued in January 1945. It consisted of a battle dress jacket, slacks with side pockets, a shirt and a baseball type cap. 

In addition, a garrison cap and a skirt were authorized. 

The uniform was available in gray cotton for summer and green wool  for winter. 

The winter uniform was the same green color as the Navy pilotís winter uniform.
