    An entry on the National Maritime Museum’s web page http://www.nmm.ac.uk/collections/search/lightbox.cfm/category/90424 states: “Sennit hats were worn with blue uniform in summer, weather permitting but not at sea unless required as protection from the sun.”
    There is no source or date given for this statement other than agreeing with the above that they finally disappeared in 1921. It does mention that there were very particular regulations governing the wearing of uniforms, a study of these might answer the query. Might there be copies of these regulations at the NMM?
