In the RNXS, the working rig was blue wooly pullover, blue open neck shirt, no.8 blue working trousers, black shoes and naval beret, on deck.
The engineers had a blue boiler suit and black boots.
The officers wore white shirt and black tie, blue wooly pullover and black trousers, with either a naval cap or beret, and depending on who was on board or what they were doing, sometimes we had to wear no.1 dress jacket and trousers.

As far as I know the RMAS only ever wore blue shirt, wooly pullover, black trousers and no head dress.

John,
The RMAS working dress was green overalls.
