Not a lot of info, but there is a Reddit thread saying that the Royal Navy has introduced a pin for its Warfare Officers (MARS/NWO equivalent). 

Silver for Principal Warfare Officer (ORO), gold for Command.  They are worn for life.

But where do you put the cigar tube on the submariner insignia?

Knowing submariners, it would be impolite to ask, and even worse for them to answer ;)

It's cute that you think that.  Currently, I work for civilians!

They've tried. The C&POs need to be soothed before it ever happens.

C&POs, the arbiters of common sense and the destroyers of stupids ideas.  As they should be.

You're right, there are no good idea fairies in the C&POs... :eek:rly:  Our NCDS really needed 50 pieces of flair for the sailors to be proud; good initiative dress committee!

Serious question wrt our uniforms:

Our short sleeve shirt is only worn during summer months. Our short sleeve uniform has an inordinate amount of bling; it take me forever to transfer my bling onto a cleaned shirt. I've got shoulder boards, SSI, dive bade, name tag, and medals.

Our long sleeve shirt is worn primarily during cooler weather, but there's no reason it can't be an order of dress during the summer months either. Unlike the short sleeve, there is exactly zero bling on the long sleeve shirt, not even a name tag!

Does no one see anything wrong with this?

I hate that we don't even put a name tag on the long sleeve, and I hate that it takes me 15+ mins just to make sure all my bling is perfectly lined up on the short sleeev.

Has anyone talked about at a minimum putting the name tag on the long sleeve? Has anyone talked about reducing the amount of bling on the day-to-day short sleeve order of dress? Maybe also reduce that to just a name tag? Maybe a name tag and ribbons only, no specialist badges or SSI?

Geez Lumber don't give the Dress Committee any ideas about putting crap on the long sleeve shirt!!!

Short Sleeve - I could live with the Name Tag and Ribbons only, but it likely takes me less than a minute to put on Name tag-SSI-Ribbons-Commanders Commendation so its no big deal for me.

Long sleeve shirt - Leave it alone, its just fine as it is.

How?! It takes me at least 3 tries adjusting the the name tag alone to get it lined up with the pocket. I then line up the SSI with the name tag. Then I put on the shirt, look in the mirror, and realize that the SSI is NOT actually line up and level/oriented properly with the name tag. Ditto for the other side.

Once you get it lined up, remove them again and use a fine Sharpie to mark each pin hole.  Next time just stick the pin in the black dot. Works every time.

Re: LS shirt...you know you bling is on your tunic, right?  LS shirt by itself is not a walking out uniform.
