    ROTC would normally use just an anchor.  Without the letters, that's a commissioned officer's cap device and should not be worn by a midshipman even if one were, e.g., midshipman captain, that is, the senior midshipman in a ROTC detachment, he'd still wear just an anchor device on his cap.

    If you are referring to the U S Lighthouse Service, that which was rolled into the USCG in 1939, no, they did not use any such variation on USN officers cap device insignia, ever.  A single lighthouse in silver within a gold open-top wreath was more their speed or an occasional badge type shield.


    See cap emblems of the various gents photo'd and page 4 specifically.
