Many thanks, Simon – that at least establishes the start of the Cook branch (= class) as August 1872. In 1861, then, it would seem that all the various cook ratings you have listed were non-continuous service (NCS) – though that, I wouldn’t think, didn’t mean that they weren’t entitled to be issued with uniform – so far as I am aware the remaining NCS seamen wore uniform, so why should not other NCS ratings.
