Details

The mourning knot is worn when NCOs are detailed to military funerals when the sword is prescribed. The knot is formed by doubling the band, passing free ends around the guard at the pommel, back through the bight thus formed and drawn taut. It is a black ribbon of material, 3” wide and 27” long, each end finished with a small hem. The two flowing ends are 12” long when the band is knotted on the sword hilt.

The USMC Mourning Knot may be worn with any branch of service saber or sword.
