Title

Rowing sweater for USS Arizona whaleboat team

Subject

Sweaters; USS Arizona (Battleship)

Description

Blue hard knit sweater from USS Arizona's rowing team. The square-serif A seems like a forerunner of University of Arizona's logo!
Many skills acquired in the Navy naturally lead to competitions between the men and between the crews of different ships. The USS Arizona's crew were very successful at competitive rowing and won the Battenberg Cup several times as well as other awards.
