Blue Cover Used in 1957 by Silent Drill Team

The Blue Cover was still utilized in 1956-57 as this photo from 1957 attests. I was a member of the 3rd Silent drill Platoon at Marine Barracks, 8th and I St., Wash. DC. The photo was taken at San Diego Recruit Depot as we performed our drill.

I bought my Dress Blues in 1962 and they came with both white and blue covers. Was told white was for summer and blue for winter.

In 1953 at PI, my recruit platoon were issued dress blues. We were given both the white and blue covers and they optional for bad weather.
