My father served his national service the RN 1947, he was on HMS Dido in 1946 or 1947 at the King of Denmarks funeral. I have several pictures of him in uniform at that time, he was an officers steward or "wine steward" rating but he never wore the standard uniform of a rating like me, bell bottom trousers and white cap etc. My pictures of him show him in a collor and tie with a black peaked cap, although he was not a PO. Can anyone shine a light on this please. I have searched in vain for information on why he wore this particular uniform, my mother even remembers always washing his white shirts and said from his time of joining the RN that's all he ever wore. Any help would be appreciated.
