Service Dress

The standard British Army uniform

After it became obvious that WW1 would mainly be a land war and that the men of the Royal Naval Division were not going to see service on ships they were reequipped with the British Army uniforms. As much as they tried to maintain their Naval traditions the only things that separated them visually from their army colleagues were the badges on their uniforms, and that a few wore beards which was against Army regulations.
