Jack Tars & Leathernecks

Jack Tars & Leathernecks

The Jack Tars & Leathernecks Collection features both Marines and Naval personnel from many countries of the world. By the eighteenth century, most of the great powers had a significant presence on the high seas.

The crews of the warships were slow to uniform in the modern sense, but the officers and small contingents of sea-going soldiers  and later Marines wore specific uniforms and insignia representing their countries.
