I recently acquired my Grandfathers U.S. Navy rank patch from World War II, I was wondering what rank it was because I can't seem to find it on Google or any service records.

Here's a picture of it.

I'm not if that is accurate, I've found that, but I'm not quite sure because this doesn't have a Naval Insignia.

I think it's a Petty Officer first rank, but I could be mistaken. My grandfather died some years ago and my military knowledge has faded...

tha looks like an E-5 insignia, not sure though since I really only know army/marine insignia.

EDIT: it's petty officer first class, which in the navy is E-6

So, Petty Officer most likely?


most definitely, a petty officer in the navy is the equivalent of a sergeant in the army BTW.

is that a shoulder board?

i never knew enlisted could wear those...

but i think its e-6

but it could possibly be e-3 seeing as how the ranks/insignia have changes since WWII

That's weird, looks just like the British army sergeant stripes.

Good luck with the search.

I'm pretty sure I'm right I hang out at the coastguard base in Boston (CG insignia are the same as Navy) and there are Seamen with this patch and in the USNSCC its the same ranks as the navy.

It may be, I don't imagine my grandfather was a very high rank, I believe he was a mechanic on an Aircraft carrier, which explains the scar he had (he got ran over) My other grandfather may have been a pilot but I'm not too sure, I know afterwards he had a pilot's license.

did you look at the chart posted, three slashes is a seaman, three chevrons (which is what is pitcured in the OP) is a Petty Officer.
