USNA Midshipmen Class/Rank Stripes and Shoulder Marks
Figure 9-7.—The number of loops in the aiguillettes indicates the status of the wearer. Dress  aiguillettes  consist  of  two  single  plaits of  aiguillette  cord  with  two  loops.  At  the  end  of  the plaits  are  approximately  3  inches  of  plain  cord  to which  two  gilt  metal  pencils  are  secured.  The  metal pencils   are   approximately   3   1/2   inches   long   and mounted with two silver anchors. Aides wear them on various  uniforms  for  special  or  ceremonial  occasions or when prescribed. U.S.    Naval    Academy    midshipmen    wear aiguillettes   as   prescribed   by   the   Commandant   of Midshipmen;  they  pin  them  on  the  shoulder  at  the arm seam. Mourning  badges,  made  of  black  crepe,  are  3 inches wide; officers wear them on the left sleeve of the outer  coat,  halfway  between  the  shoulder  and  elbow. Officers   wear   mourning   badges   when   serving   as honorary    pallbearers    at    military    funerals,    when attending military funerals in an official capacity, and at other prescribed times. Those attending civilian funerals may wear mourning badges if desired. MIDSHIPMEN’S AND OFFICER CANDIDATE’S UNIFORM MARKINGS Naval Academy midshipmen are classified as officers of the line but are officers only in a qualified sense.  They  rank  just  below  chief  warrant  officers. They wear the following uniforms: service dress, full dress,  dinner  dress,  working,  infantry,  and  tropical. Their service dress and working uniforms are similar to those of commissioned officers. Midshipmen  wear  a  3/8-inch  gold  chin  strap and  a  gold  fouled  anchor  device  on  the  combination cap. They wear a miniature cap device on the left side of the garrison cap. Midshipmen  wear  a  pin-on  gold  anchor  on each  lapel  of  the  blue  service  blouse.  Outstanding midshipmen  of  each  class  wear  a  pin-on  gold  star above   each   collar   anchor   on   the   full   dress   and 9-9
