That was my (stamped 1944) hat issued to me when I joined in Halifax in 1957 and Flag Office Atlantic sent me to HMCS Loon a bird class harbour ship on temp assignment because of a shortage in compliment due to a flu. I made up a ship decorating lighting string to decorate the ship for a special occasion. I only had a set of 5ís and the hat. I kept the hat and after we passed out in HMCS Cornwallis in Ottawa Division I had all the Division sign it .
