Hello,
You should be able to find one in a copy of the Blue Jacket's Manual of that vintage. Best regards, Paul

I just passed up a chance to buy some of the rolled up whites on the right side of the picture. Still rolled and tied like in the picture. Guy at the estate sale insisted on unrolling it. Was a pair of bell bottom pants.

Basically the same thing you are seeing, a photo of the layout.

It's supposed to be there, so if doing a display you should have one to be correct. There were also a couple different layouts during WWII ; you'll notice that the name on each item was supposed to be displayed.

Sigsaye will know...and like was posted, check the Blue Jacket's manual as it will be listed in there. Look for the 10th, 11th or 12th editions.

I might add that the 11th edition omitted some pages from the earlier editions, but it should cover the layout and what goes into the seabag.

No, that is the "recruit" chief petty officer, each division had a 3rd, 2nd, 1st class and a chief. Each one had specific jobs in the company. (ie mail, master-at-arms) but the RCPO was in charge. back then they wore miniture rating badges with the know as a rating. now it is just pin on collar crows.

And the ties are square knot I think, the manual covers this too.
