Navy Dress Tiara - Not Just For Maggie

So yeah.....I have an awesome tiara! Thanks B. Walthrop.

But they are for more than just placating me in my delusional state. They are actually "rare pieces of kit" as stated in the letter that accompanied my tiara. The Armorer dug up some pics of some female Navy officers who got them by earning them.

The Armorer is a pretty resourceful person.

I searched for quite awhile and was only able to find 2 pictures in the intrawebs, and one was in the USN uniform manual.

So even back in what looks like the early 1960s, some idiot decided to have those stick-on name tags with one's name on them?

Senior officers, including a USMC Major General, with "Hello my name is..."!

Too funny. I HATE those damn things!

Maggie will look wicked awesome with her ti-yarah. It'll be pissah.

Hahpy New Yeah, by the way.

Any way you might know how to locate another? Currently looking for one as a gift to a female Naval Officer. They are still authorized for wear, just can't seem to find where to buy one.

Sorry, I don't. My understanding is mine came from a retired officer getting rid of a good home!
