    In some of the pictures the candidates have an 'H' on their hand, what does that mean?

    H on hand means "get in the haircut line"!

    My boyfriend, who just finished his Plebe year, is sitting next to me (he's waiting to start his sea year this Monday! Wow time really flies) and he said that last year they wrote the company numbers on their hands so maybe the "H" is supposed to be a "4". Other than that suggestion he says "Huh, that's new" :rolleyes:

    Maybe it's a "1" for first company? I didn't see any pics of plebes with 1 on their hands but saw most of the other numbers

    Definitely haircut. When my DS got the “H” while waiting online he asked what it meant, and was told haircut.

    Hi all. I am assuming that DS means "dear son"?? Anyways, I noticed that all the DSs had H on their left hand, while company numbers seem to be on the right hand. The was one someone's DS with H on left and a red B on the right.

    I now believe my son is in 2nd company. His unknown bald headed twin was in 1st company...:shake:
