David, I'm at a loss as to what you mean by Kenya badge has lost it's Jewels.

If you can elaborate I'll try and answer your message.

Regards

Alan

Hello Alan, you are obviously too familiar with the badges to have spotted it.

All the other badges that you have posted have coloured "jewels" around the rim of the crown, but KENYA does not.

Alan, I must say that I am fascinated by all these badges that have been posted; things that I am not familiar with.

In an earlier post you referred to your database, and I was wondering if this is a book that could be purchased or one that you have compiled yourself.

I would like to know if the IRON DUKE and LION wore badges at Jutland.

David. thanks for the little nudge regarding the Kenya badge.

There are still a few badges that I have to go over and touch up so to speak, That is one of them. Basically I have taken the original photo's that both myself and my Dad collected during our naval careers, scanned them, repainted them in a lot of cases, the end result is what you see.

The database I refer to is my own that I have built up over the years. Grabbing every bit of useless info I can, because somewhere along the line the useless info will become relevant and no longer useless but useful.

In answer to your 2 queries, Iron Dukes badge was submitted as a pattern on 24th July 1922 and Lion submitted her pattern on 27th October 1919.

The badges may well have been used unofficially prior to those dates
However many ships had smaller badges in the early days, without the naval crest above and were similar in the design, ie Hms Lion would have depicted a lion.
Here's another example of my tidying up work, Hms zodiac badge was a bit of a mess as the original shows, some 5-6 hours later the result is what you see here. Now imagine that amount of work x 1700 badges.

It took years and years to get the collection the way it is now.
And as you correctly pointed out some still need a little extra.

Regards
Alan

Stan, you are quite right with the Hms Bulawayo badge it is unusual.

The reason I say this is that it has the 'motto' underneath.

Quite a few badges had the ships motto underneath them. The original paintings all had this, they were produced on the old 'foolscape' paper. When the paper sizes changed ie. from foolscape to A4, A5, A6 etc. the old foolscape paper would not fit into A4 sized envelopes for storage.
Some dimwit therefore decide to guillotine all the originals down to A4 size rather than order A3 size envelopes. as a result all the motto's were removed from the original patterns.

You couldn't make it up could you? And so another piece of British history went into the waste bins of the M.O.D.

Here's my version of the badge....without motto!

Alan

Sorry about this I moved this to the Ships Badges thread.
I feel that as we have created an excellent thread on Ships Badges and crests that it is important that any other posts requsting or posting them should be put there...

Sure In my post #69 that Wasp badge is from the USS Wasp CV/CV-18 an Essex class carrier. No longer in service.

In post # 70 that Wasp badge is from the present day USS Wasp LHD-1

Default Re: Bull Class Admiralty Cable Ships

Dave, sadly no individual badges for those ships they didn't fall into the required size. I will check though to see if there is a 'type' badge for them. i.e similar to say the 'ton' class badges, same badge for all ships just the name differs.

Regards
Alan
