Hello,

For RN midshipman is the rank slide white with a brass button (like a lolly pop) and does anyone have a pair of midshipman rank slides ?

And does anyone have a Ordinary rates Cap 57 Cm Head ?

No rank slide in world war two as far as I know, just the standard midshipmans gorget patch on the collar. Don't know what would go on battledress.
