Description

Blue Dress Coat belonging to Submariner WWII Navy Cross recipient Joseph Warford Williams.  During WWII, Williams received the Navy Cross.  During the war, he commanded not one but FOUR submarines!  After the war, he rose to the rank of Rear Admiral and he ended his career as commander of the 7th fleet and then commandant of the 7th Naval District.  The jacket is in near flawless condition, and dates from after WW2 of course.  A great jacket worthy of further research.
