The traditions and insignia of Britain's merchant fleet have been less well documented than those of the Royal Navy, but there are detailed uniform regulations for mercantile seafarers and famous shipping lines such as White Star had their own specific outfits and rank insignia. Featuring hundreds of colour illustrations, this reference work is a comprehensive review of uniforms, medals and badges. The book also contains contextual articles on the history of the merchant fleet and the development and production of uniforms.
