Pair of flag officer's full dress epaulettes lined with black leather stamped in gold with the manufacturer's details, and with padded blue silk where the epaulette rests on the end of the wearer's shoulder. Each epaulette has a brass slide underneath the strap and a gilded brass Royal Navy flag officer's button on top of the strap to secure it to the coat. The slides are stamped 'RIGHT' and 'LEFT'. The upper side of the epaulette straps are covered in plain gold lace with a raised gold wire embroidered crescent at the shoulder end. Each strap bears rank insignia for a Rear Admiral: a silver and velvet embroidered king's crown, a silver crossed sword and baton, and a large embroidered silver bullion eight-pointed star. The ends of the epaulettes have a double row of gold bullions. There are twenty gold bullions around the outer rim and nineteen smaller bullions inside them.
