Royal Navy Civil Branch Uniforms

Postby theironduke1 » 01 Oct 2015 22:15

Does anyone know when the so called "Civil Branches" of the Royal Navy started to wear the full dress coatees with a double row of buttons like the military branch instead of a single row (In pairs, threes or fours depending on branch)? I have seen photos of these officers with both types worn up to about 1897 when most are wearing double rows.

I can't remember the date offhand, but recall that I found the details in this website: ... 201980.htm
Relic of many a fight and siege and sack, it points a moral and adorns the back.
