NWU Flashes, Rank, Name Tape and Branch Tape Placement
The Sea Cadet or Navy League patch (flash) is sewn centered, on the right breast pocket, with the eagle facing toward center.
The Navy's logo is embroidered on the left pocket. Under new regulations, this logo must be visible at all times to meet USNSCC uniform regulations.
The name tape should be sewn above and flush with the top of the wearer’s right pocket and the wearer’s back right.
The “USNSCC” or "USNLCC" tape should be sewn above and flush with the top of the wearer’s left shirt pocket.
Another name tape should be sewn above and flush with the top of the right rear trouser pocket.
On NWU uniforms, CPOs, SLPOs and Petty Officers wear their ratings on their collars. NSCC and NLCC collar insignia replicate rating badges for wear in lieu of sleeve insignia.
These collar insignia are sewn on an angle so that the center of the insignia is in line with the point of the collar and such that a perfect triangle is formed. Make sure Eagles are facing forward.
