The Sea Scout uniform is similar to that worn by Sea Cadets and Royal Naval ratings and is rather practical since it can easily keep one warm aboard ship. At the same time it is also very smart especially if you take your time to tie neckerchiefs.
The uniform itself
The uniform consists of the jersey which has the Sea Scout lettering sewn or embroidered onto a No. 4's top which is worn with black or navy trousers and black shoes. Badge locations are the same as for Scouts with the addition of Admiralty Recognition badges (where worn).
Head dress is the same as for RN ratings, being a white round cap bearing the Sea Scouts tally band rather than the name of the ship. Patrol Leaders (known as Watch Leaders) can wear a PL's tally band (provided you can find one) which includes the Sea Scout branch badge located between the words Sea and Scouts.
