Default Re: Cap Ribbons/Tallies

Hi Pelican. I believe that the cap tally is RAN Reserves and the Derwent tally is for the Type 12 Destroyer Escort in RAN service from the early 1960s to the 1990s?
Cheers John O'C.

Default Cap Tally Dot

Does anyone know when the dot on cap tallies at the end of the ship's name was introduced. I realise that WWI cap tallies had a dot after the ship's name but wish to know how much earlier the dot was used after the name.

John an oppo referred me to this site where 'Nick' has asked a similar question. I will leave you to look into the answers.

Thank-you Pelican. It seems from photos at http://gmic.co.uk/topic/50851-hms-ta...comment-466866 that the dot was introduced after 1895 but before 1903.

My guru suggested trying the R.M.G. so I have found these but you might find a better way/wording to use the search box and obtain more logical results. The keyword is ribbon(s) not tally/tallies. Good luck.

I have a sailors hat from HMS Rapid. Hand sewn white. Wanting any information on year to connect to my family history. Even crew lists would help.

Hello shena and a very warm welcome to the Forums. If you can post a photo of the cap tally it may help to give an answer to your query. The last HMS Rapid was in service until 1981, but there were eight previous ships of that name. It is unlikely that crew list exists for any of those ships, unless the person was onboard at a time of a Census return, the latest one that is available is for 1911, although there wasn't a Rapid in commission at that time.

Jim

It's a good thing that USN sailors don't wear cap tallies ... they have just announced that the latest Arleigh Burke class destroyer will be named USS Lenah H. Sutcliffe Higbee ... imagine trying to fit all that on a tally!
