History : Insignia Organization



In order to distinguish & differentiate the crew on board submarines, in 1918 it was contemplated the idea of providing the submariners with an insignia visible on the uniform and it was king Alphonse XIII who supported & established it the Royal Decree on 5 of September, 1919.


Distintivo

Chief & officers shall show this insignia on the right side of the chest and N.C.Os & sailors shall show it on the right arm.

Such insignia will be made of gold filament or tin of the same color and will be red in the oval for all the crew serving in submarines, now and before, being the background substituted by a blue one for the alumni at the School of Specialties as well as for the staff who, having completed the studies, has not served in that kind of ships yet.


On 7 of November, 1978 by means of a government Decree the design was modified:

The specialty insignia or aptitude for submarines shall be of gold filament or tin in the same color and shall include a red stone in the oval. Commanders, Chiefs, Officers, N.C.Os and First Rates shall show this insignia on the right side of the chest and sailors shall show it on the right arm.

The staff of all Corps, ranks and specialties officially in possession of the specialty of submarines is authorized to the use of the corresponding official insignia of this specialty. In the same way, the navy Corps is authorized to this insignia with a black stone in the center as established in Chapter IV of this regulation.
