General Information on the Cap Tally.
The tally on a sailor's cap is a ribbon usually bearing the name of a ship or some other establishment to
which he belongs.
Practice varies with each navy, though a conventional tally is black, with a gold or yellow inscription. The
inscription may be simply a ship's name (e.g. "H.M.A.S. ARRERNTE"), the name of the navy
The manner a tally is fastened onto the cap varies with each navy. For example, the British tie it into a bow
on the left side; the Germans and Russians tie it at the back, leaving behind a pair of streamers; while the
French stitch it onto the cap like an ordinary cap band.
Occasionally the tally's colour may vary from the usual black (such as the Ribbon of Saint George tallies
used in the Soviet and Russian navies to denote Guards units).
