SAN Nutria mustering badge
 
Does anyone know of or have seen a SAN Marine mustering badge yellow screen print on nutria? If so a photo or info will be most helpful.
Thanks, Neville

Hi Neville
I've never seen one but it is possible some may have been made when the navy briefly changed to nutria in 1982. I doubt if any were issued though.
Cheers,
Alex

My thoughts aswell, in 8 years of collecting SAN mustering badges have never heard of or seen a nutria mustering badge. I asked the question because another poster on a fourm insists that the marines were made and issued.

Hi Neville
Sorry, he may be right on that one. I think there may have been a Marine branch one but not for any of the other trades. Mostly the marines osed the blue on white and gold on black though. I assumed the question was referring to the period when the blue navy wore browns for a while.

Hi Alex,
Sorry should have mentioned it we are just talking about the Marines. But I agree with you I don't think the Marines would have worn a mustering badge on nutria. I know in the early "marine" days we wore yellow (safron) on black rank badges with our nutria bush dress, but still navy style with rank only on left arm.

Hi Neville
Definitely needs a bit more investigation, I'll ask around.
Cheers,

Hi Alex,
Found the following photos.

Hi Neville
Those are great photos, thanks. I wonder if they were nutria badges or if they just wore standard black and gold badges on the brassards? I would guess black and gold. Must be a group photo of instructors for a course I think.
Cheers,
Alex

To me it looks like the Leading Seaman on the far right is wearing yellow on black but the other three whose right arms are visible might be nutria. The backgrounds don't quite look dark enough. Having said that I've never seen a nutria Marines badge. Maybe this might help compare the shades of grey in the photo.
