Manufactured during WW2 and available only from commercial outlets such as Naval tailors, so not official issue

A blind eye was turned to the wearing of these tallies to some extent in the Royal Navy, unlike the Royal Canadian Navy who took a more stringent view of things (Naval order 2061 of the 16th of May 1942 ordering that such ribbons where not to ne worn, only H.M.C.S.).
