What uniform is this?

Can you help me please?


I received the following advice from Michael Doherty on 3 August 1998.  If anyone else can confirm which Navy (I am assuming it is the Royal Navy - English) and maybe help me to date the photograph based on the uniform style, etc:-

Subject: identification of service uniform.
Date: Mon, 3 Aug 1998 15:37:50 +1000
From:  "Doctrine" doctrine@adfwc.org.au


Whilst browsing for 'Doherty' information I noticed the photo and your request for help. Don't know when you put it up but I hope I'm not that late.

The uniform definately looks Naval. The anchor on his left arm indicates the rank of Leading Seaman (or 'Killick' as in the type of anchor).  The chevron indicates years of good conduct service. These are awarded for every four years service which would indicate your relation had been in the service between 4 and 8 years.

Hope this is of some help.

Michael Doherty
Lieutenant Commander
Royal Australian Navy
