Hi Mel,

In my Coastal jpg directory I had BOTH spellings. I've deleted the CHAWNTON now. Just in case you don't have it, here is the Official CHAWTON badge.

Cheers,

Ed

Hi Tom,

Delay as I ended up in Emergency Tuesday evening. Let me out yesterday morning. Decided it wasn't a heart attack, but was a bad case of Acid Reflux. But to be safe they've arranged an appointment next week with my cardiologist.

Here's FENTON. Tomorrow, if you're lucky, you'll get STUBBINGTON.

Cheers,

Ed

Hi Tom,

Here it is. Odd that the unofficial has no name box so there is no way of telling what ship it is for!

Cheers,

Ed

yes i wondered why there was no name box, but as you are aware i have several copies of the STUBBINGTON with that format, so i have to go along with it until i learn something that changes it,
Once again Ed a big thanks,lovely job,
i am in touch with the TON CLASS Association , so perhaps i will be getting some answers to why these unofficial badges came about when their members see what i have collected

TAKE IT EASY!! I will not be around for a couple of weeks off to the Caneries on the INDEPENDENCE OF THE SEAS tomorrow morning, not looking forward to the "BAY", (I can remember what it was like when i was with the grey funnel line, ) big grin

Warm regards Tom

Independence of the Seas is about 120,000 Tons. I don't think you'll notice the "BAY".

Enjoy the Independence Tom, we had a great cruise on her to the Caribbean, May we will be on the Radiance of the Seas doing a back to back cruise from Vancouver BC to Alaska and Back.

The first badge is the 1941 version,and the second badge is the 1989 version.
Both badges are contained within this thread along with a write-up for each badge.Well worth looking at it from the beginning. The Attached badges are Ed's and don't come any better.

Escort carriers: Were Audacity, Avenger, Charger, Khedive, Nabob, Pretoria Castle and Thane the only escort carriers not to be granted an official badge? Does anyone know the reason why these vessels were so snubbed? This unequal treatment also happened with other lend-lease vessels in the Town and Catherine classes.

For Tom,

Here's the unofficial for ASHTON.

That only leaves CHAWTON (1), but the original is so small and poor I can't work out what the badge is. It appears to be a shell, with something superimposed on it. I can't make out what the 'something' is.

Cheers,

Ed

I have searched this thread and found no badge for HMS Inflexible nor searching the web. Is there one I can have for our WW1 commemorative Winkeigh web site?

Many thanks,

Dear SCRG1970,

Brilliant. Many thanks as we can now show the ship that this man was on all though the war, including being at Jutland. The Winkleigh Roll of Honour only show the ships sailors were on during 1919-20 when the list was created. Now we can tell the real stories as the vicar at the time really wanted.

Greetings,

I have come across this badge for HMS WOODBRIDGE HAVEN
(Minesweeper ) when sorting out my badges about Ton Class, and as there never was a Woodbridge Haven Minesweeper, only a Minesweeper support ship, can anyone caste some light on the origin of this badge, The anchor could have some reference to the Woodbridge Haven's official badge and the Chicken some reference to the looking after the Ton Class Sweepers,
Has anyone got any ideas of this badge or has anyone seen it before,
i would be most greatful for any help,

Best Regards Tom

 Viewed from beneath the blistered guns of the damaged X and Y turrets of her sister HMS Ajax, Achilles come sunder fire from the pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee during what was to become known as the Battle of the River Plate on the 13th December 1939. Shells from Achilles are closing on her opponent as the Graf Spee alters course at the start of the doomed battleships flight to Montevideo.

 During a patrol on 6th July 1918, Christiansen spotted a British submarine on the surface of the Thames Estuary. He immediately turned and put his Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 floatplane into an attacking dive, raking the submarine C.25 with machine gun fire, killing the captain and five other crewmen. This victory was added to his personal tally, bringing his score to 13 kills by the end of the war, even though the submarine managed to limp back to safety. Christiansen survived the war and went on to work as a pilot for the Dornier company, notably flying the giant Dornier Do.X on its inaugural flight to New York in 1930. He died in 1972, aged 93.

The Battle of Trafalgar was fought on a calm, almost windless day, on 21st October 1805.  Nelsons revolutionary battle plan was to cut apart the larger Franco-Spanish fleet of Vice-Admiral Villeneuve by sailing in two single column divisions directly at right angles into the combined fleet and thus rendering almost half of the leading ships useless until the could turn and join the fight, which in such calm conditions could take hours.  The battle raged for five hours in which time not one British ship was lost, however, Nelson would tragically lose his life at the very moment of his triumph, a triumph which rendered the British Navy unchallenged in supremacy for over a century.  Here HMS Mars passes between the French ship Belleisle on her starboard and the French ship Fougeux on her port, firing a murderous hail of gunfire at both ships.  Also shown in the painting on the left hand side is the Spanish ship Monarco and the French ship Pluton.

 It was in 1941 that the remarkable Focke-Wulfe FW190 first appeared in the skies of Europe, quickly establishing itself as a most formidable adversary. It proved to be the supreme weapon against all allied bomber forces. Here FW190A-8 of 1 Gruppe, Jagdgesschwader 1 is shown attacking a B17G of 381st Bomb Group during a critical defence of the Reich in 1944.

Cat Among the Pigeons (FW190) by Ivan Berryman.
Half Price! - £60.00
 Following the successful attack on the Mohne dam on the night of 16th/17th May 1943, three Lancasters of 617 Sqn turned their attention to the Eder, some twelve minutes flying time away, accompanied by Wing Commander Guy Gibson to oversee the next attack. After several aborted attempts to obtain the correct height and direction for their bomb run by Flight Lieutenant Shannon (AJ-L) and  Squadron Leader H E Maudslay (AJ-Z), Gibson called in Maudslay to try again. During his second approach, he released his Upkeep bomb too late. It struck the top of the dam wall and bounced back into the air where it exploded right behind Maudslay's aircraft, lighting up the entire valley and causing considerable damage to the aircraft that had dropped it. Despite what must have been crippling damage, AJ-Z did manage to limp away from the scene and begin the return journey, but Maudslay and all his crew were sadly lost when their aircraft was shot down by flak at Emmerich-Klein-Netterdn. The Eder was finally successfully breached by Pilot Officer Les Knight's aircraft, ED912(G), AJ-N, which returned safely.
