This item is listed for historical interest only. It is not for sale.
Item #20377

This is a very nice Inter-war US Navy Commanders Tunic that is named to Francis D. Pryor.  The tunic has the older appearance to the material and is dated 3/15/24 and named on the inside pocket.  The coat's chest size is an approximate size 40.  He began his service in 1907 with entrance to the US Naval Academy.  He served in various functions and through WWI in the Pacific Fleet.  He was the commander of the following ships: USS Whipple, USS J. Fred Talbot, USS Kittery and the USS Camden.  His uniform includes the following ribbons which are sewn on: the WWI Victory Medal with one star, The Nicaraguan Campaign Medal, The Mexican Service Medal, The Haitian Campaign medal and the American Defense Medal.  He retired in 1935 but was recalled after WWII started and it is rumored he served on one of the Roberts Commissions (The Pearl Harbor Commission Report).  Then was retired again in 1945.  This is a great piece of history and also comes with photocopied pages from the 1907 Lucky Bag as well as a typed bio of his service.  He died on 5 December 1961 in Charleston, SC.
