CAPT/CDR H.D. NICHOL, ROYAL NAVY
 FULL DRESS UNIFORM & COCKED HAT, Dated 1929 
 
Full Dress Winter Blue                               Dated 11/29
Made by George Spencer, Portsmouth     Approx. Size  38 Medium
Label CDR H.D. Nichol, RN                        Cocked Hat by Gieve, Mathews
 

Presented is a British Royal Navy, full dress, winter blue uniform owned by Captain H. D. (Henley Dale) Nichol, RN (1894-1970), when he was a commander in 1929 while serving in HMS Vernon. The uniform is in exceptional condition without fault. Then CDR Nichol joined the Royal Navy in 1907 and had a distinguished career serving in WW I and WW II. He was mentioned in dispatches for gallantry when serving in HMS Espigele in 1918. His son, Peter Dale Nichol also achieved the rank of CAPT and in his las posting was Aide de Camp to Queen Elizabeth II.

The handstiched tailor's label inside the jacket reads:

Geo. Spence
8 Ordnance Row
The Hard. Portsmouth, 11-29

Uniforms of this quality from a noted naval officer are rare. They are wonderful display items, and in this era was similar to the Royal Navy Uniforms that date back to Lord Horatio Nelson. They serve to establish a historic connection with the past as is shown by this lithograph of British Royal Navy Uniforms dated 1834. This surviving example of a commander's uniform of this style is in its original "fine" condition.

PICTURES OF OTHER ITEMS ARE PROPS AND ARE NOT INCLUDED

        Admiral               Captain              Mate               Midshipman


CONDITION: The Uniform and cocked hat are in “fine“ original condition. The epaulets are from an earlier period, Ca 1860, made of gold bullion and are of the rank of midshipman.

   Cocked hat with Medicus Collection saber not included - inquire
