once again Mike ,BIG THANKS FROM ME
Warm regards Tom
No Tom,Derek had a lot of photos of badges that were not in the book.
They are out there somewhere,as his son said, when they are gone that is it.

Greetings Mike,

I had dealing with Derek through Ron Taylor in the Decorating Room In Portsmouth Dockyard , but as we know Derek passed away and at the time he was part of the trio compiling the Books on badges , and they all at some time popped into the Dockyard to check colours etc from Ron or his staff in the decorating room,
Looks like a missed opportunity on my behalf, I often think that there are lots and lots of badges out and about that will never see the light of day,
I collect unofficial badges as well as official so you can only guess as to how many i have and how many i have never seen

Warm Regards Tom

All,

I was in my local in Gosport on Friday night and although I have been in there several times, I have never noticed this badge before?

Its quite high over the mantelpiece and I must have passed it quite a few times.

I checked Colledges and there has never been a ship of this name.

The landlady informed me that it came from a group based in HMS St Vincent, some years earlier.

Regards,

Craig.

Default ship's badges motos

I served on the Submarine Aurochs from 1959 to 61 in Canada. One of the talking points re the moto was that someone in the Admiralty must have had a sense of humour. The translation from the Latin was "Bulshit Baffles Brains".
If I remember it was something like "Homo Sapientum Excreta Taurus"

Stoker PO; Did the 6th Submarine Squadron, RN, have an official or unofficial badge whilst stationed in Halifax?

Yup - the shore base for the squadron was known as "HMS Ambrose" and the crest was as shown here:

http://www.forposterityssake.ca/RCN-DOCS/6THSUBSQN.htm

Click on "Cover and Introduction" section.

The book "Ambrosia," of which I am fortunate to have a copy, provides a wonderful insight into the squadron and its personnel.

A rogues gallery and another portrayal of the badge here:

Derek Taylor would tell you 'They're Badges NOT crests'.

Here is the official badge for HMS AMBROSE, originally approved in 1921.

Cheers,

Ed

There used to be a Ratings Bar at RNH Imtarfa at Malta in 1975-6. That was called the Oasis Club. I am sure this was hanging above the bar.

Thanks Ed - a much better image than I could find!

And you and Derek are quite correct about "badges"... I stand corrected and hang my head in shame!
