Royal Navy Officers' Uniform Distinctions

ADMIRAL OF THE FLEET

1812-1825

In 1812 the white facings made their reappearance on officers’ full dress. All buttons now bore a crown above the anchor, and for the first time, the Admiral of the Fleet’s uniform differed from those of Admirals.

The undress uniforms of 1812 were not much different from those of 1795, with the addition of the new epaulets and buttons. The exception was the Admiral of the Fleet, who was given a unique undress.
