Stan, here's your badges as requested and thank you for posting the ships photographs.

My collection of badges is worth a lot of money, however I'm more than happy to trade a decent sized photo of a ship for the badge, so can those who make requests bear this in mind please.

Regards
Alan

Popeye, thanks so much for the insight into US badges, I have seen quite a few and like ours are very artistic. The US Navy does not have restrictions on their badges like we do.
The Royal Navy badges are akin to heraldic crests and some are indeed variants of family crests. There are strict guidelines for the artists set out by the admiralty and any design not complying is duely rejected.

There are however multitudes of unofficial badges for RN ships designed by the Sailors themselves which are very much similar to US badges.

Feel free to post any US badges, it's always worth looking at comparisons.

Regards
Alan

Thanks alanbenn. However the USN does have restrictions on the shape of those "badges" based on what type of command they badge is assigned to...don't ask me the details I can't remember.. All badges must be approved by the chain of command.

1) USS Enterprise CV-6
2) USS Hancock CVA-19
3) USS Midway CV-41

Popeye, thanks again for the US Navy badges, I wasn't aware there were restrictions on them, probably due to the fact that you sometimes see more than one badge for a ship.
Keep them coming Popeye as I'm sure members who collect US Navy ship photo's would like to add the badge for those ship's to their collections.

Regards
Alan

Ty, welcome to the forum, here's the badges you requested, there are a few ex-ganges boys among us, myself included. I also served at Hms Terror, Singapore in 1972. I have also included a nice photo of the mast manning, although I think it has been posted elsewhere, it is a larger copy than the one previously posted.

If you have any good photo's of Kenya and Mauritius there are plenty of us who would like to see them.

Regards
Alan

Now compare those badges designed in the 50s compared to the ones the USN uses on all ships except CVNs and Submarimes. These type badges have been in use the last 30-25 years.

Here's the ships badge from the not yet in service USS New York LPD-21 an San Antonio class LPD.

The US Navy calls a ships badge a "Coat of Arms".

Popeye, now those are badges I like, they are along the same sort of theme as Royal Navy ones, do they get passed on to ship that take the same name or is a new badge designed for each ship?

When a ship with the same as one previous is comissioned there is a new coat of arms..but usally incorprating something from the ships namesake "coat of arms". Later I will find an example.

Rik, I have seen that photo before but I don't know where it originated from, although it looks official it's not in my database of badges.
The one I have posted was passed as an official pattern in 1956.

There is no reference to any other badge for Pembroke. The database I have depicts all badges from around 1915-20 up to and including 1995.

So unless someone can enlighten us further I don't know if that badge was ever sanctioned.

Alan
