The curl at the top of an RN Officer's rank badge overlaps. The correct way to wear them is with the braid going under the curl at the front. The other way round ( as on Wings' chair) is known as 'going astern' and when/if spotted the wearer is the one to buy the beers.

If one has two sets of rank badges, and mixes them up it is possible to be going astern one one shoulder and ahead on the other.
