    Description

    WWI American Red Cross Complete Woman's Foreign Service Uniform, Hats, and Shoes. The group includes a standard Oxford gray whipcord wool foreign service tunic with horizon blue Department of Military Relief collar flashes (one detached at the button), two gold six-month service stripes on the lower left sleeve and two metal "US" collar devices. All of the standard Red Cross buttons have been replaced by regulation army eagle buttons for reasons unknown to this cataloger. The tunic is complete with matching skirt, overseas type hat with enameled Red Cross insignia pinned to the front, a rare wide-brimmed hat with a hat band piped in the same horizon blue branch of service colors, and a pair of high-top lace-up shoes. The lining of the tunic frayed, otherwise all items are in very good condition. From the Collection of the American Red Cross.
