Hands On History Features Foul Weather Gear for January @ Battleship New Jersey
How did sailors manage in the cold weather?
During World War II, the ship’s heating was not nearly as good as it is today, try on some of their coats and hats, and see for yourself if you can keep warm. Throughout her history, the ship spent most of her time in warm climates, avoiding the chill by staying near the equator; however, she couldn’t avoid it all together, including a particularly cold commissioning ceremony in Norfolk, Virginia in November of 1950.
Check our actual Navy foul weather gear in the Captain’s In-port Cabin throughout the month of January as part of the Fire Power tour.
