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.

If you are in Vancouver 25th May, Ed, would love to catch up.

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

Operation Manna was set in motion on Sunday, 29th April 1945 when Lancasters of the Royal Air Force began the first of 2,835 sorties, dropping 6,672 tons of food, to relieve the crisis in the Netherlands.  These humanitarian missions continued until 8th May, saving many thousands of civilians from certain death by starvation and malnutrition.  Here, Lancaster 4K765, LS-Z of 15 Sqn piloted by Flying Officer Jack Darlow, releases its precious cargo over a sports field north of The Hague.  Also in the crew was Alistair Lamb the Rear Gunner.

 The Sopwith Dolphin was a radical departure from previous Sopwith design philosophies, embodying a reverse-stagger on the wings, a water-cooled Hispano-Suiza engine and an unusual, but highly popular positioning of the cockpit which gave the pilot unprecedented views. One exponent of this purposeful looking machine was Canadian Major A D Carter who claimed many of his 31 victories flying the Dolphin. He is shown here sending an Albatross to the ground on 8th May 1918 whilst flying C4017. Carter was himself shot down soon after became a prisoner of war. He was killed in 1919 whilst test flying a Fokker D.VII at Shoreham, Sussex.
