There was a military official from China who named coo quartered at Britain embassy. He was interested in this question very much, and wanted to look for an opportunity to find a result. Afterward, he referred to the Britain navy especially, and finally found the answer.

Formerly, as the great power in the navy filed in the history, the cap of the British navy had experienced many changes. About in 1770, the earliest time, the sailor of Britain started to wear one kind of cap which eaves turned over the cap and looks like baseball cap. This is the rudiment of the marine cap. In that time, there was no waft on the cap, just had a patch of the family or the sailor herself.

In 1800, the cap changed to black high canister with eaves shape. Some people also sew cloth strip which printed the ship name on the hat wall and there was still no waft on it. Hereafter soon, it is 1805, British, French fleet carried on a naval battle in Teal Farr. The British fleet had defeated the united fleets of the British and French. The British Navy commanded Nelson had been severely wounded to death in the fight. His reliquiae was shipped to Britain to inter. But based on the historic information then, there was not record which record the British gob hat no waft.

From 1810 to 1820, the high tube ceremonial hat's contour changed the low tube ceremonial hat's shape. On the hat brim decorates on the cloth strip which subscribes to start to be printed with designs and so on anchor, royal crown or rose, as well as ships' name.

Until 1864, the British gob hat changes now shape, and added two black streamer on the left side of the hat which to the shoulder. However, the time to use the streamer was very short. Merely 4 years. In 1868, the Admiralty announced that in order to unify the British sailor clothing, they decided to change the gob hat all to the black. Above it was gold thread or prints the sailor with the yellow in the ships name and must add the HMS three English letters on it. And the streamer tied a knot on the left side of the hat. After tying a knot, in addition the length does not surpass 2 inches (5.08 centimeters). This stipulation has continued until now.
