    Default Petty Officer visor insignia

    I've noticed varying types of insignia on Navy visor caps for the Petty Officer or Chief Petty Officer rank.

    Here are 3 examples, there could possibly be more?

    Anyway, would like to get a timeline on the introduction of the various insignia on the Visor caps if anyone can help.

    Images are from Griffin Militaria and The Collectors Guild.

    Regards

    I will have to spend the next 5 hours connected to the dialysis machine, but I'll show you the edicts for each when I come home.

    Here are the illustrations taken from the "birth certificates" of the items you asked about. Also added a photo of a scene from the movie "55 days at Peking", the Charlton Heston movie about the Boxer Rebellion. That movie got the tally right, but switched the hero from a Japanese to an American as they did in the Great Escape.

    Many thanks Nick. A question on Edict 23, and the image of the relevant cap, is that actually a Navy student insignia, or a Petty Officer insignia?

    Regards

    A student (cadet), not NCO.

    Excellent, thanks Nick. We’ve seen this style of insignia, but in a painted yellow, on a green field cap recently, which I understand is also for a student.

    Much appreciated!

    Regards
