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

Now back to my ship models <grin>

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

The moment shortly after dawn on 24th May 1941 when HMS Hood, in company with HMS Prince of Wales, opens fire on the Bismarck, setting in motion one of the greatest sea dramas the world had seen.

HMS Hood Engages Bismarck by Ivan Berryman.
Half Price! - 15.00

Bismarck, now complete and newly painted in full Baltic camouflage, returns to Hamburg for the last time as the harsh winter of 1940/41 relents and the pride of the German Kriegsmarine prepares for real action.  In the distance, the pre-Dreadnought Schleswig-Holstein awaits her next commission, the old ship alternating between vital ice-breaker and air defence duties at this time.  The Bismarck would in May 1941 put to sea and engage and sink HMS Hood only to be caught by the British battleships Rodney and King George V.  Bismarck was pounded into a floating wreck, finally being sunk by the torpedoes of HMS Dorsetshire.  From her crew of 2300 only 110 would be rescued by HMS Dorsetshire and HMS Maori.

 The C-17 Globemaster III is the newest, and the most flexible cargo aircraft to enter the airlift force.  It is capable of rapid strategic delivery of troops and all types of cargo to main operating bases or directly to forward bases in the deployment area.  The aircraft is also able to perform tactical airlift and airdrop missions when required.  The inherent flexibility and performance characteristics of the C-17 force improve the ability of the total airlift system to fulfill the worldwide air mobility requirements of the United States.  The ultimate measure of airlift effectiveness is the ability to rapidly project and sustain an effective combat force close to a potential battle area.  Threats to U.S. interests have changed in recent years, and the size and weight of U.S.-mechanized firepower and equipment have grown in response to improved 
capabilities of potential adversaries.  This trend has significantly increased air mobility requirements, particularly in the area of large or heavy outsize cargo.  As a result, newer and more flexible airlift aircraft are needed to meet potential armed contingencies, peacekeeping or humanitarian missions worldwide.  The C-17 was designed and built with this new world order in mind.
