USN Cap Badge "LHS"

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.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
