Navy Captain II rank
Summer service uniform

M1973 summer dialy uniform for a captain II rank of the Soviet Navy. The white-shoulder board uniform was introduced in 1973 and replaced the double breasted summer uniform that utilized golden shoulder boards from 1969 to 1979. The uniform is still made from wool, yet a lighter version of the parade uniform for wear in summer and hot climate parts of the world. For example, Cuba. The regulations allowed for both white and black trousers with the uniform - this piece comes with the white trousers.

The shoulder boards hold two metal golden stars each for the rank of Captain II rank and a ribbon bar is mounted on the wearers left chest. On the right side, a intermediary military graduation badge is mounted; no traces from other badges can be seen although one might have expected a Red Guards badge. The six front buttons are 1970s two-piece manufacture with black painted back side, the yearstamp is not possible to read. Roughly we would date this uniform to the mid 1970s. The visor cap is a standard navy issued cap. According to regulations, the cap should have metal leaves mounted on the visor. There are no traces from these on the pressed cardboard visor.

The ribbon bar holds the following awards as large size clip-on ribbons:
Order of the Red Banner, Medal for combat service, Medal for 100th anniversary of the birth of Lenin, medals for 50th and 60th anniversaries of the armed forces, medals for 15 and 10 years of irreproachable service.

The uniform is a size 50 with a visor cap in size 56. [Go to top] | Republic of Finland
