    Was hoping someone here could tell me more about this cap. It belonged to Warren P. White, from the Elmont, NY area. I know he served in WW1, and was a Deputy Sheriff in Queens County in 1926. Does anyone know what time period this hat is from? Or what S.I.C means after his name in the hat? He was a liquor salesman from the late 30's til the 60's, when he passed away in 1970. He was also an air raid warden during WW2.  This hat is definitely khaki, not white, turned brown with age.
    Thanks for any info!

    His rate would have been Seaman 1st class, the equivalent of todays SN ( E-3). 

    The cap would have been worn by someone assigned to the 'Shore Establishment' of the CG during the WW 2 era. That division was involved in port security, pier guards, and similar duties.    The uniform was of a cotton khaki colored material and was a coat, of nearly the same style as the current service dress blue uniform, trousers were of similar style, a khaki shirt and black neck tie . Worn by members up to petty officer 1st class.  For collectors, that looks in great condition. Good find..

    I had his uniform also, but that was blue. Must have been from another era?

    Also, he was born in 1890, so that would have put him in his early 50's , during that time. Woudln't that have been odd? Or did older men enlist as well?

    The blue uniform was the winter uniform and would have had a white or dark navy blue cover for the cap. Khaki was the summer uniform. The WW 2 CG history was pretty complicated as far as organization of the CG goes. Given his age, he was most likely a volunteer member of the Temporary Reserve. Older folks and those not physically qualified for active duty. They would have volunteered for and done port facility guard or security watches.. Google for the CG Temporary Reserve should give you a lot more history of that organization..
