US Navy: Rating badges, 1886

Unread postby J.T. Broderick » Fri Feb 24, 2006 2:27 pm

Though they are much different today, the basic elements of US Navy petty officer rating badges — eagle, specialty mark, and chevrons — made their first appearance in the USN Uniform Regulations of 1886. Here is a page on the various rates and insignia:
