Default Ships/Badges - Crests etc

Just wondering if any other forum Members had any interesting ships crests they could post. I mean the proper crests and not the very small copies or cardboard stickies that most ships use for PR.

I've a couple which I will dig out from their hiding places but here is one to get started

HM S/M SANGUINE
'S' Class Submarine Launched Cammell Laird 15.02.1945
Sold Israel 1958 - RAHAV 03.1959
Cannibilised for spares for TANIN 1968

Size: 8.5" x 6.5"
Material: Unpainted alloy
Acquired: Bric a Brac shop 1970s

Realised I had one more tucked away in a drawer - for a ship that never was!

NFR 90
NATO Frigate Replacement for 1990s
Project abandoned early 1990. Emblem on the crest depicts a frigate going through the badge of Hamburg, where the project was based

Size: 7.5" x 5.5"
Material: Plastic on wooden back
Acquired: Presented Dec 1989

This project was intended to provide a Frigate for eight NATO countries including the UK (our replacement for the Type 42 Destroyer). After the project was cancelled, there were various UK evolutions ended in the Type 45 Destroyer (Daring Class).

Odin, that should be as rare as a King Edward VIII penny, or a stamp without the Queen's image on, and probably as valuable. I'd hang on to that one. Pity these projects don't come to fruition. Same ship, same spares, same connections, contributes to less likelyhood of conflict in the future. Wonder how much the project consumed before it was abandoned. Just think of all those new kitchens and TV's it could have bought for our beloved and trusted political leaders.

Ships Crests or Ships Badges?

I have books of Admirally Ships Badges (Original Patterns) 1919 - 1994, plus an Addendum 1995 - 1998, by T.P.Stopford it was printed by Midas Printing Hong Kong, I do not know if they are still available.

I've not seen that particular book but a quick look at E-bay shows several similar books are available. There is a ships badges book in my local reference library.

You are absolutely correct nogrub - they are ships badges and not crests. My initiate entry was to try and pick up the larger 'badges' rather than the smaller ones used for PR, so crests seemed a more appropriate description.

A lot of people acquire these small sticky badges.

I have a number of Ships badges in my garage. They belong to the Local R.N.Association and were removed from the old club when it was taken over. The association told me to get them to a good home. I have a Publican after some of them but I will list them and hope that some of you may want one of their oldship. (If I have it of course) All they would cost is the postage and a possible donation to our local R.N.A.
I will sort them out when I come back from holiday in ten days time.( I am off to Sunny Scotland??????) Cheers Stan.

Has anyone got a copy of the crest of HMS Ribble. Trying to build up a collection of Ribble thingamajigs. Did it vary from the different ships to carry the name. Or even a picture of the 1980's minesweeper. E.mailing them could be the best reproductive alternative.
Many thanks.

I have a copy in one of my books of a lamb carrying a staff with a cross at the top and a pennant under the cross, the lamb is on a white triangle with blue lines that seem to represent the river. Does this description fit!

Surely does.
The Lamb of God is the motif of the now City of Preston (Priest's town) , on the bank (north) of the river and the blue line will be the river of course.
Don't know why it should adopt an image more in tune to Preston as opposed to any other town on the river's trail. She was adopted by the Yorkshire town of Settle, at the headwaters of the Ribble, in WW2.

Danae
Dartmouth
Juno
Iron Duke
Exmouth
Newcastle

I have already had a request for the Repulse, As I said the cost would be the postage plus a donation of your choice to my local R.N.Association.
Some are a little weighty, others smaller and more modern and lighter.

Having seen the crest of HM Gunboat posted by Chris Howat reminds me of how lucky can one be?
Every month I have a drink with a couple of ex matelots down at the Cock Hotel in Wellington Shropshire. One works for the "Gas" and the other is ex CID.(Both are Cavalier members)
Ron the gasman, who I saw last Wednesday, had been to a funeral of an ex matelot.
To cut a long story short he acquired two books of Gale and Polden ships crests. A lot of these were examples and his wife emailed me a couple which I would like to share.
He is researching the lot which he says runs into thousands so if I can tempt any more out of him I will stick them on this thread.
Here are the samples along with Chris's Gunboat motif.

Cheers, Bob.

Default SHIPS BADGES/CRESTS

Having had some interest already in ship's badges I thought I might start a new thread of ship's badges.
perhaps we could link it with photo's of the ships past and present, depicted by the badge, or even comparisons with the photo's of badges and those wall mounted plaster ones. Here's a few for starters.
regards
Alan

Great thread, Alan. I have a few badges, but am missing loads, so, hopefully you can add the missing ones.

Rik, I hope this thread will grow not only for the badges but also the ships photo's. It always adds to a photo when framed if the badge is there also.
I don't know how many you have or more importantly how many you are missing, my collection is from the early days to 1998ish and currently stands at 1700+ badges along with the 116 Fleet Air Arm Squadron badges.

Cheers
Alan
