USCGC ANEMONE WAGL-202 CREW
March 1944

Notice the 3rd and 4th men in the back row. It appears that they are wearing CPO uniforms but a closer look reveals that the cap device only says "USCG" and have the Steward rating.
CWO Dana Lewis, USCG (ret)supplied the "rest of the story".
"The USCG cap device was worn by the rated Stewards. Described as Sterling Silver letters, 3/8' high, on two gilt bars. They wore the CPO type uniform, but had black buttons. In July 1944, just after D Day, the Steward rating was authorized to wear a rating badge of the same design as other petty officers. Chief Steward and Chief Cook also got to wear the CPO cap anchor." Thanks Dana.
