“His Majesty King George V has been pleased to command that in the future the Master of the Trinity House shall wear, as the distinguishing mark of his office, a band of gold lace one and three-quarter inches broad (corresponding to that worn by a Rear-Admiral in the Royal Navy) above the cuffs and on shoulder straps in lieu of the band of gold lace one inch broad prescribed for the Elder Brethren.”

Note: In all other respects the uniforms of the Master and the Elder Brethren are identical.
