FactsEdit

  • Fact 1: The "Crackerjack" Service Dress Blue uniform for junior enlisted personnel has remained largely unchanged since the late 19th century.
  • Fact 2: The distictive bell-bottom trousers of this uniform hold two practical uses: they act as swimming aids for overboard sailors, and allow easy removal when wet.
  • Fact 3: Official uniform regulations for the United States Navy were first issued in 1791, but the first standard-issue uniform didn't appear until 1817.
  • Fact 4: The black or white scarf characteristic of naval uniforms is called a tar flap; early sailors tarred their long hair to prevent it catching in rigging, and the flap protected their jackets from stains.
  • Fact 5: The standard sailor hat is a nautical adaptation of the peaked soldier's hat, and first appeared in 1826 in Russia.
