Hi everybody herrwiggly here, UK customs ranks as follows:-
A.P.O. Assisstant Preventive Officer
1 gold lace ring with curl same as RN Sub Lt.
P.O. Preventive Officer
2 gold lace rings with curl same as RN Lt.
S.P.O. Senior Preventive officer
21/2 gold lace rings with curl same as RN Lt. Cdr.
A.C.P.O. Assissant Chief Officer
3 gold lace rings withh curl same as Rn Cdr.
C.P.O. Chief Preventive Officer
4 gold lace rings with curl same as Rn Capt.
On the peaked cap, decoration on the peak is plain for APO,POand SPO and 1 row gold oak leaves for ACPO and CPO.
The cap badge is a port cullis in a wreath surmounted by a crown.
There are of course higher ranks in the Customs s ervice but I believe these to be plain clothes officers.
I see on the national news the other night the Director General of the customs service being interviewed. :D :D :D Cheers

Hi Chris herrwiggly here, yes you have the ranks correct except as you say, without the coloured backing.
No, there is no shoulder patch on the uniform coat, obviously when wearing full uniform with the headress you can tell they are not R.N. officers, but in shirt sleeve order without headress, alas no. :D :D :D Cheers
