USN NECKERCHIEF TIE Worn by Sailors with both the Service Dress Blue and Service Dress White uniforms, the black neckerchief traces its origins back some five centuries, when it was worn as a sweat rag around the forehead or neck—but in an emergency it could also be used as a bandage to dress a wound or as a tourniquet to staunch a life-threatening loss of blood. The distinctive square knot was introduced by the Navy in 1817 to give the neckerchiefs a uniform appearance.
