Uniform/badge help please

Postby calhawes » Mon Dec 02, 2013 11:10 pm

I have recently come across this photo of my Gt Grandfather George Edgar Coombs (on left) (b Portsea 16 Mar 1875), who joined the Navy as a young lad. He was in the Naval Police, and rose to 'Sh Cpl 1 cl' which I interpret as Ship's Corporal, First Class. In this photo he is with a complete unknown, who is wearing a very different uniform. Can anyone help with identifying the uniform and/or badges of either man? I can guess that NP is Naval Police but that's about it!
Many thanks

The man sitting in the picture is the navy police commissioner and I can say that because the badge he has on his cap the same badge my uncle has.
