The Ferry 1900659 views"By day, officers and men when working in the open wore sun helmets; when dressed in their best, the sailors wore sennet hats. These are the traditional straw hats only associated with certain unfortunate small boys and the chorus of H.M.S. Pinafore. This extremely smart looking but most impractical headgear disappeared, as an item of naval uniform, a year or so later."
