CFB Esquimalt personnel recognized for life at sea

A new service insignia recognizing significant amounts of time spent at sea on Canadian Navy ships and submarines is being issued to hundreds of military personnel at CFB Esquimalt, including those in naval, air force and army uniform.

The first group of military members were issued the new Sea Service Insignia at a special ceremony Thursday.

The insignia comes in four different colours – pewter, bronze, silver and gold – in recognition of the number of sea days accumulated, from 365 to 1,460.

The insignia, in the form of a badge and pin, is only being granted to Canadian Forces members serving on Jan. 1, 2010. Sea days earned before then will be counted for eligibility.
