    Further to Frank Scott’s post above, I can confirm that (so far as my reading goes) there was no mention of war service chevrons in the Navy List for July 1920, but the vertical wound stripes are still included. They were only worn on the undress coat (the ‘reefer jacket’) and were two inches in length. the bottom being a half inch above the top of the curl of the rank insignia.
