1943-1947 Navy Grey Rates for C.P.O.s & P.O.s!

Recommended Posts

Hi Dan,

Yes, don't know to much on these gray jumpers either. I heard about them but never saw one untill this one.

DAN and JASON: I saw these as a youth worn by seaman unloading supplies as their white uniform showed dirt quickly and chambry shirts and dungarees were too tight sometimes? :lol: Chief Yeoman from Mustang Guy!

Digging up an excellent old thread...

 

Jason....that thing is stunning! Did these guys wear the SP brassard on their sleeve as well?


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.

Jason is correct, The brassard was part of SP equipage. Like the other gear it was worn while on duty in the capacity of a Shore Patrolman. This would mean Patroling, on the beat. Lots fo these guys worked at the "Station House", processing "stuff" like any other police department. These guys would not wear the brassard. Does that make sense?

Thanks for the replies Jason/Steve. I didn't get specific as the frame of mind I had was that while engaged in SP patrolling duties, the brassard would be worn as it is today, in addition to possessing the rating badge. Thanks for the clarification!

I was hoping Santa would leave me a gray PO1 or CPO. I guess I'll have to be "nicer" in 2014.
