U.S. NAVY OFFICER / CWO CAP DEVICE

The Navy Uniform Regulations use the rarely heard term “Commissioned Warrant Officers” when describing which the cap device consisting of two crossed, gold fouled anchors upon which rests a burnished silver shield that’s surmounted by a spread eagle. This reflects the fact that up until 1975, there was a Warrant Officer 1 rank that was not made by commissioning but instead was appointed by the Secretary of the Navy. And even though the W-1 grade has been a thing of the past for over four decades, the Navy Uniform regulations for some reason still have a graphic of the now-defunct cap device worn by the lowest-ranked Warrant Officers: two crossed, gold fouled anchors, with the unfouled arm of each anchor pointing inwards.

A miniature version of this device is worn on Garrison Caps, while the subdued version is worn by Officers and CWOs serving with Marine or Army units. (Note: Officers are not allowed to wear subdued insignia of grade with Marine Corps units.)
