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

Swordfish of 825 Sqn led by Lt-Cdr Esmonde begin their heroic attack on the battlescruisers Scharnhorst and Gneisenau and the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen as they make their way up the English Channel from Brest during Operation Cerberus on 12th February 1942.  Although all the aircraft were lost and no significant damage was done to the German fleet, all the pilots were decorated for their bravery and Lt-Cdr Esmonde received the first Fleet Air Arm VC to be awarded, albeit posthumously.  The painting depicts the first wave of Swordfish attacking the Scharnhorst with Gneisenau taking avoiding action in the distance.  A German torpedo boat has turned to confront the attacking aircraft.
