Figure 15. Enlisted Ranks and Insignia, 1994

Each component service has its own distinctive uniforms and insignia. At independence Ghana opted to retain the British order of military ranks and corresponding insignia. In the 1990s, Ghanaian ranks are still identical with British ranks and insignia except that Ghana has substituted a black star or the Ghanaian coat of arms for the British crown on appropriate insignia (see fig. 14, Officer Ranks and Insignia, 1994, and fig. 15, Enlisted Ranks and Insignia, 1994).

Officers in the army, air force, and navy and enlisted men in the army and air force wear their insignia on the shoulder. Naval enlisted men wear their insignia as cap badges except for leading seamen and first and second class petty officers, who wear cap badges and shoulder insignia. Field uniforms of the army are olive green, those of the navy are dark blue, and those of the air force are light blue. Service caps are identical with British service caps.

Data as of November 1994
