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.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
