My name is Arthur and I live in north east Essex. I'm not ex Military or, Naval due the fact of having perforated ears. However, I have always had a very strong interest in the armed forces along with their histories and insignia although I am not a collector of any kind of material or metal badges. I do have a large collection of images of ship's badges relating to the R.N. and those of the Commonwealth Navies. Most are in the form of photographs which I had purchased from a close colleague of mine who has now sadly passed away. His name was Derek Taylor and I have seen his name mentioned in this Forum. His knowledge on the subject was in my opinion second to none. I don't know how I have missed this Forum but I am pleased that I have come across it. I hope that I might have something to contribute to it, and I am sure that I will learn plenty from the other members.
