Description

With the exception of the royal marines, who adopted light infantry rank insignia from their earliest days, the Royal Navy was slow to introduce distinguishing rate badges for those serving on the 'lower deck'.   In a unique compilation, the insignia worn since the mid-19th century by Royal Naval ratings, Royal Marines, queen Alexandra's Royal Naval Nursing Service, the Women's Royal Naval Service, the Merchant Navy, Auxiliaries, Volunteers, youth, and other maritime organizations, are brought together in a single volume.

The author

Ernest C. Coleman entered the Royal Navy as a 'Junior', and left thirty-six years later as a Lieutenant.  A life-long student of the Royal Navy's history, he has published several books on the subject including a two-volume history of the Royal Navy in polar exploration.  Ernest has always had a fascination with the Royal Navy's insignia.  In this book he has pulled together all the research he has done as the first of a trilogy of works covering officers, ratings, and associated branches of the services.  He is a resident of Lincolnshire, England.
