Introducing the Crossing the Line Golden Shellback Cap: A Symbol of Rare Maritime Achievement

Embrace the allure of maritime tradition with the Crossing the Line Golden Shellback Cap. This exceptional cap is a tribute to the age-old custom of 'Crossing the Line' ceremonies, a practice that has its roots in seafaring legends of ancient times and has been proudly embraced by the Royal Australian Navy. Achieving the coveted title of "Golden Shellback" is no small feat; it requires crossing the equator precisely where it intersects with the international date line in the vast Pacific Ocean, all while aboard a warship.

A Tradition Anchored in History:

The custom of 'Crossing the Line' ceremonies carries a rich history dating back to the legends of seafarers from eras long past. This cherished tradition lives on through the Royal Australian Navy, serving as a testament to the enduring connection between sailors and the sea.

The Cap:

The Crossing the Line Golden Shellback Cap is a distinguished navy blue heavy brushed cotton creation, designed to withstand the elements of the open sea. Its gold sandwich peak adds a touch of brilliance and contrast to the design. At the forefront, Neptune, the legendary god of the sea, is finely embroidered in tonal gold. He symbolises maritime prowess and the deep bond shared between sailors and the boundless ocean. A scroll beneath Neptune proudly bears the words "IMPERIUM NEPTUNI REGIS," a homage to Neptune's reign over the seas. The cap's peak displays the phrase "Ancient Order of the Deep," encapsulating the timeless traditions that unite sailors.

The Back:

Turn the cap around, and you'll find the back adorned with the embroidered words "Golden Shellback" on a striking gold scroll. This title signifies an extraordinary maritime achievement—the successful crossing of the equator at the point where it intersects with the international date line, all while aboard a warship.

SPECIFICATIONS:

Material: Crafted from heavy brushed cotton
