Service Dress Uniform: Royal Manticoran Merchant Marine

The service dress uniform is the most formal uniform afforded personnel in the grades of C-1 through C-8.


Uniform

Tunic

Personnel in the grades of C-1 through C-8 will wear a short, Eisenhower style, tunic in navy blue. The tunic should fall to the wearers waist when worn. This tunic does not feature a plastron (bib). The tunic will zip up the front and features a zipper flap, closing to the right, that hides the zipper from view. The collar is mandarin, in the same styling as those found on the uniform tunics of the Star Empires' armed forces. The tunic does not feature epaulets, or shoulder loops.

Undershirt

Personnel in the grades of C-1 through C-8 will wear a white, close fitting, mock turtleneck.

Trousers

Personnel in the grades of C-1 through C-8 will wear gray uniform trousers and a gray uniform belt with a gold military friction buckle. The trousers are worn bloused with black, low-topped boots, or worn unbloused with shined, black, military style, low quarters.

Name Badge

All ranks will wear a gold, metal, name badge with black lettering. The name badge should be affixed to the right breast of the uniform tunic with clutch pins or magnets. The name badge features the wearers LAST NAME, FIRST INITIAL. Those personnel honored with a Peerage in The Royal Manticoran Navy, The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, may elect to display their Peerage name instead. For example: CALABASAS. For proper placement, please see the measurement guide graphics at the bottom of this page.

Rank Insignia

Personnel in the grades of C-1 through C-8 will display the appropriate number of chevrons/rockers for their current rank on the left sleeve only. The rank should be affixed midway between the elbow and the bottom of the company patch. For proper placement, please see the measurement guide graphics at the bottom of this page.

To attach rank insignia to a uniform, it is recommended that the insignia first be sewn to a piece of navy blue felt. The felt should then be trimmed, leaving a small border which can then be used to sew the insignia to the uniform tunic. 1/4" is a recommended starting point. Not only does this technique provide a sharp look, but it will make attaching the insignia much easier, especially when multiple chevrons are necessary.

Service Stripes

Personnel in the grades of C-1 through C-8 will display the appropriate number of gold service stripes, if earned, on the lower left sleeve. For proper placement, please see the measurement guide graphics at the bottom of this page. For further information on service stripes please consult Admiralty Order 1306-02 or Uniform FAQ 008 on the TRMN Forums.

To attach the service stripes to a uniform, it is recommended that the stripes first be sewn to a piece of navy blue felt. The felt should then be trimmed, leaving a small border which can then be used to sew the stripes to the uniform tunic. 1/4" is a recommended starting point. Not only does this technique provide a sharp look, but it will make attaching the stripes much easier, especially when multiple stripes are necessary.

Awards

Ribbons

All ranks may display ribbons, if earned, on the left breast of the uniform tunic. For proper placement, please see the measurement guide graphics at the bottom of this page.

Aerospace Wings and Space Warfare Pin

All ranks are authorized to wear aerospace wings, if earned, directly above the ribbons of the left breast of the uniform tunic. Additionally, personnel are authorized to display a space warfare pin, if earned, directly below the ribbons on the left breast of the uniform tunic. The wings and space warfare pins are metal and should be gold or silver, as appropriate. For proper placement, please see the measurement guide graphics at the bottom of this page.

Award Stripes

All ranks may display award stripes, if earned, on the upper right sleeve of the uniform tunic, below the RMMM patch. The stripes are worn on the outer part of the sleeve and run from the back sleeve seam to the front sleeve seam at an angle. The ends of the stripes should be folded over, or ideally, tucked into the seams. For proper placement, please see the measurement guide graphics at the bottom of this page.

Chivalrous Orders

Members may display any earned chivalrous awards that are represented by an award ribbon or a chest star. The wearing of awards that hang about the neck (with the exception of the Parliamentary Medal of Valor and the Star of Grayson) and those represented by a sash are specifically prohibited with the Service Dress Uniform. For more information on this topic please consult TRMN-05, "Proper Wear and Display of the Knightly Orders and Chivalrous Awards."
