[Uniforms] WWI Navy uniform

Hello, my name is Mary Ellen Gomrad and I working on my Master's thesis, which is related to fundraising and recruitment posters during World War I. I am in the process of describing the rhetorical context of the Fourth Liberty Bond fundraising initiative. I am not sure of what the WWI naval uniform was called. I am referring to the men's pants that are part of the work uniform. I do not need information on the dress uniform. Would anyone in your organization know what the bell-bottom denim blue jeans worn on battle ships during the WWI were called? Or could you direct me to a reference source where I might find this information? I appreciate any assistance you may be able to provide. Thank you for your assistance, Mary Ellen Gomrad
