Description

This is an American Red Cross Volunteer indoor uniform worn by the National Blood Program branch. The light grey cotton fabric uniform indicates that the wearer was also part of the Grey Lady Service of the American Red Cross, which had become popularized during World War II. The red chevron worn at the base of the left sleeve indicates the wearer had over four years of service.

According to the label, the uniform was produced by Country Workshops located in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition, the uniform label has what appears to be the size of the uniform written in marker, B42, W34. This uniform seems to be missing the matching belt and hat associated with this uniform.
