The sketches featured in this page were scanned from a publication titled "Uniform and Clothing Regulations for Petty Officers, Men and Boys", published for His Majesty's Canadian Naval Service in 1918.

These sketches were published in the Naval service regulations manual for general guidance. They include drawings for uniform items such as the serge jumper (with and without cuffs), blue jean collar, serge trousers, and flannel. The shapes of the garments are shown, and their proportionate measurements are given. These measurements would vary according to the size of the man, but their ratio had to be maintained.

The sketches don't provide details of stitching and other finishing required. For this information it was necessary to consult the sealed patterns for each piece of kit.
