AbstractIn 1975 Mr Andrew Mollo's Naval, Marine and Air Force Uniforms of World War 2 was published.' This fascinating book contains very little information about our naval uniforms during World War II and since so little has been written about this subject and the uniforms worn by the SA Navy and its predecessors the following article has been compiled. This is a topic on which one could easily write a book and South African Naval Regulations and Instructions Chapter 15 Uniform and Dress Regulations, with amendments to February 1974 is 44 pages long. In December 1968 there were 732 naval uniform badges. Recently further uniform changes were promulgated and it is understood that SAN Uniform and Dress Regulations are soon to be revised.

Naval Gunfire Support: An Army Role in a New World OrderARMY COMMAND AND GENERAL STAFF COLL FORT LEAVENWORTH KS; Hubbard, Zachary P. (1992-06-05)This study investigates the Army's role in Naval gunfire support in light of current force reductions and changing military missions. The discussion focuses upon Naval gunfire training and predeployment planning and coordination for Naval gunfire support of contingency operations. During the initial stages of a contingency operation, the Army relies upon other services for fire support until sufficient Army field artillery and aviation attack assets are available. Fixed-wing air support and Naval gunfire provide this initial support. Naval gunfire for the Army was not coordinated during predeployment planning for operations Urgent Fury, Just Cause, or Desert Shield. This study explains the Army's dependence upon the Marine Corps for the planning and coordination of Naval gunfire support. It promotes methods to decrease this dependence by improving the field artillery community's Naval gunfire training and awareness. The analysis addresses institutional training in the Army and Navy; Naval gunfire training at Army Combat Training Centers (CTCs) and in the Battle Command Training Program (BCTP); Army-Marine Corps Joint Naval gunfire training: and Joint cooperation in developing Army operations plans requiring Naval gunfire support.
The New Jersey Naval MilitiaNEW JERSEY NAVAL MILITIA FORT DIX NJ; Girardet, Wayne E. (2008)Naval militias predate the reserve system and functioned primarily as a back-up force for the U.S. Navy. At its high water mark around the turn of the last century, 26 states had a naval militia. With the advent of the U.S. Naval Reserve (USNR), naval militias evolved into organizations with a dual state and federal mission much like the National Guard. By law, they must consist of at least 95% drilling naval reservists to receive federal support. The New Jersey Naval Militia was founded in 1894 and was organized into three battalions. It has been activated for every major conflict from the Spanish-American War through the Korean War, at which time peak strength of 3,950 officers and enlisted personnel was achieved. Starting in the late 1950s, the militia was gradually absorbed by the USNR, resulting in disbandment in 1963. In 1999, Governor Christie Whitman recognized the need for a state waterborne force and reactivated the naval militia as a joint command consisting of a regiment with three battalions. However, unlike its predecessor, the New Jersey Naval Militia Joint Command (NJNMJC) is a hybrid with the 1st Battalion being a true naval militia, the 2nd Battalion performing as an operational Naval State Guard, and the 3rd Battalion providing support and auxiliary functions. The concept of operations differs from a traditional reserve or guard unit in that it is based on volunteerism. each member is required to donate two days each month for missions in support of state and federal agencies. Additional mission requirements result in being placed on state active duty with pay and allowances. The NJNMJC has the following primary missions: Weapons of Mass Destruction/Homeland Security; Marine Police and Other Law Enforcement Agencies; N.J. State Emergencies (e.g., Hurricane or Flood); N.J. National Guard Counterdrug Task Force; Special N.J. Projects and State Guard Missions (e.g., OPSAIL 2000); Battleship New Jersey (BB-62); and Youth Programs.
