The Ratings for the Veralum is wearing No 8 Action Dress the officers are wearing No 14 Action Dress, both are identical based on a similar rig used by the US Navy it was issued to the Pacific and Eastern Fleets. It was intended to be proof against Malaria. The ship left the UK in February 1945 so it ws likely that this dress was issue to the Veralum to be used a the Commanding Oficers discretion. This dress must have been successful as it was use with minor changes up to 2015.
