This photograph shows an
unknown naval deck officer. The photograph itself is interestingly
mounted in a ship's porthole.
The naval officer wears a
dark blue peaked naval cap with an imperial crown and scroll in yellow
(or white) metallic thread above an imperial crown (see right). This
insignia identifies him as a Deck (or junior) officer. He wears a
double breasted officers jacket (or possibly a greatcoat) also in dark
blue (see Naval Officer's
Uniforms). His shoulder strap insignia identifies his exact rank
although this cannot be clearly seen from this photograph. Under his
jacket he wears a white shirt and collar with a thin black tie.
