Australian Navy Cadet Insignia Changes

Unread postby brucey » Thu Jan 13, 2005 4:09 am

In an attempt to err.. save money I guess the ANC has changed their rank insignia slightly.

The ANC also have not put the new insignia on their website yet. So will attempt to describe the changes:

1. The ranks of Cadet Petty Officer and Cadet Chief Petty Officer are now surmounted by crowns and identical to Petty Officer Instructor and Chief Petty Officer Instructor. (The two are differentiated by a different style of cap with Cadets wearing a junior sailor cap and Instructors wearing a peaked cap.)

2. All cadets and instructors soft-rank insignia now have the words "Australian Navy Cadets" at the bottom of the epaulet instead of "Naval Cadet", with a line break after Australian. So it looks like:
AUSTRALIAN
NAVY CADETS

3. Cadet Midshipman hardboard rank insignia is as for RAN Midshipman however with the "Australia" removed. The soft rank insignia is as for RAN Midshipman but with the "Australian Navy Cadets" writing as described above instead of "Australia".

4. There are some changes in the design of the officers hardboard rank insignia, however the concept remains the same.

There are many ways in which the ANC uniform differs from the RAN, if anyone wants pictures or more details about the ANC uniform and rank insignia... please ask.
