Hi , yes they were blue but so deep in hue that they appear more black, and that's a very interesting point, one which I had'nt realised before about the uniforms being copied from us, nowadays the uniform has changed drastically and really bears no resemblance to the older period ones, more like a paramilitary costume now, progress sometimes ***** big time :-)

Well that's weird it won't let me say s#cks
The US Navy has a black uniform which is called navy blue, but it is quite black.
In my German textile book are such blue uniforms which appear black, but the USN one is just black.
Britain had wonderful uniforms, and even in the UK Army today, which I know professionally, they have very nice uniforms.
Otherwise, all uniforms are deteriorating in aesthetic terms to resemble cartoon figures, just as is happening with automobiles and such.
The contemporary aesthetic stinks, or, as you say, *****.
