Want to build my collection and gather historical facts about the use of these badges at naval commands.

Thanks,

I have my issued Naval Station Seattle Brig badge (pictured on your site, btw) from the early 90s. I also have a couple ship's MAA badges from the 50s. Not my focus, but I do grab them when I get a chance.

 

I do not profess to be a militaria expert, but I conduct as much research as I am capable of and then write about my findings.

Hi Dan,

I only have one in my collection. I do not know if this one is ww2 or 50's. I do not know a whole lot about these badges. I bought this one a few years back. In ww2 the USS Pamanset was a Oilier and has some history to the ship.

There is a pat number on the back, that's all I can find.

Looks like you have a nice collection all ready.

Latest addition. Pacific Naval Air Bases Contractor, WWII era, maker marked. I'm learning more about police / military police badges.

 

It appears civilian police force badge usage started around 1840s. I'm guessing at this point, but Western sheriff / marshall usage predated that time period.

 

USN usage timeframe still eludes me, but early USN terminology appears to have been Police Petty Officer and/or Master At Arms.

 

I'm currently leaning toward early 1900s as USN common usage beginning period.

 

Any input from forum members?

 

Thanks,

-dan

Nice badges, I especially like the AVT Lex badge!!

I liked it, too! I've really toyed at the idea of collecting these badges...especially the early-mid century examples. They are quite exquisite in their utilitarian presentation and design!

My current hypothesis is 1) USN use of Police Petty Officer (P.P.O.) badges did not start until WWII, or just before WWII. A 1938 edition of The Blue Jacket's Manual does not list a collateral duty of police petty officer, whereas a 1941 edition of the BJM does list the collateral duty of P.P.O., the collateral duty of P.P.O. is listed as late as 1968 in the BJM.

 

2) Shore Patrol badges were also likely to have started in WWII, or possibly after WWII.

 

3) Master-At-Arms, as well as Chief Master-At-Arms badges were likely not used before 1921 when the MAA specialty was discontinued. I've not yet dated an MAA badge prior to 1938, but it's early in my research.

 

4) Contracting of base security to civilian police individuals (i.e. Base Police Forces), I don't have a timeframe captured, though I believe Sampson NTC and other NTCs employed police forces during WWII.

 

Please post any info you might have.
