Our embroidered sleeve device on serge blue fabric for a Boatswain Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) conveniently combines the gold Coast Guard shield with the Boatswain CWO specialty mark of two crossed anchors correctly centered and distanced above it.

To properly attach the device on the Service Dress Blue (SDB) coat, place the device on the outside of the sleeve so that the bottom of the shield is 1/4-inch from the CWO rank stripe, then position it so the shield and Boatswain insignia are horizontally centered on the outside of the sleeve.

Boatswain CWOs do not wear specialty marks on the Dinner Dress Blue Jacket or Formal Dress uniforms (it is worn, however, on the Dinner Dress Blue uniform with the SDB coat). On white uniforms, the specialty mark and rank insignia are displayed Hard shoulder boards.
