Default Re: Bull Class Admiralty Cable Ships

The badge for these vessels is that of the standard minor vessels badge.

any minor vessel is allocated this badge, as is any vessel not previously issued with a badge.

Here's the badge with the name Bullfinch.

Rik, many thanks for the mixture of official and unofficial badges for these minesweepers.

For those who maybe interested, The official badges are:-

Abdiel, Caledonia, Wilton, Fittleton (ton class badge)
The next one along from Fittleton is the official badge for the 'Ford' class minesweepers.

The remainder although fascinating are all unofficial badges, as far as I am aware.

I'm sure there is a book with several unofficial badges for those ships that 'were forgotten'.

Anyone else got pics of these unofficial badges?

Regards
Alan

Rik, Do you have the badge of HMS Pincher, an Algerine Class sweeper. From memory it was a lobster perched on its tail.I would like to add it to my collection of photos of my old ship.

That is a bit strong, unseen.

Someone having a copy of a Sealed Pattern does not imply that they have ever heard of your friend.

Alan,

Thanks for the photo of Pincher's badge, it is now in my collection.

Three shots of Pincher taken during 1955/56.
1 Approaching Goole for a Navy week visit.
2 En Route to Brussels for the opening of the Buda Bridge.
3 Southern Families Week in the Outer Pool below Tower Bridge.

No 2 was from the Brussels Newspaper 'La Dernier Heure' which supplied us with photographs. It has been posted on another site dealing with naval topics.

Hi John
Thanks for the welcome but I am a bit confused now. The badge shows a red lion but according to the heraldic data that I have managed to get, it says that the lion is black, otherwise the crest appears to according to the data,
H e r a l d i c D a t a
Badge :On a Field Barry wavy of six white and blue.
a demi lion erased Black, enfiled with a ducal coronet Gold.

Hi Have just joined the forum so bear with me if I repeat any info you may have had already.
Have just trawled through the posts on Ships Badges ( an interest of mine ) and noticed requests for any books on the subject. These are the ones I work from....

"Admiralty Ships Badges" Vol1 and 2 by T.P. Stopford
This contains all the official patterns from 1919-1994 in colour wth heraldic description. Taken from the original documents which were housed in Chatham Dockyard, and yes some clown did cut them down to fit a filing cabinet thus destroying some mottos and inscribed notes.

"The A to Z of Royal Naval Ships Badges" by B.Wilkinson, T.Stopford and D.Taylor
A deeper description ,history of the ship and photo. Unfortunately only two volumes were published covering HMS Abdiel to Buzzard.

"Badges and Battle Honours of H.m.Ships" by Lt.Cdr K.Burns
Once again a deep description with many ship photos and battle honours. The drawback is that it only covers ships in commission at the time of publishing i.e. mid 1980s

"Royal Navy Ships Badges" by Peter.C.Smith
Cross section of fifty or so ships with an interesting section on boats badges.

"Crests and Badges of HM Ships" by Alfred Weightman
This is really the "Bible" covering not only the official badges but also the unofficial ones where known. The only publication that does this that I know of. The drawback is out of print and difficult/costly to purchase.

Hope this helps someone and apologies if I have waffled on for a FIRST POST

Hi Andy

Sorry but I don't know which is correct. I just saw that plaque for sale on e-bay at

http://shop.ebay.co.uk/sis/_W0QQ_kwZ...FIQ20FALKLANDS

Perhaps you could drop Alanbenn a PM and ask him to clarify?

blackshuck, I assume you are referring to the Hunt class destroyer HMS Exmoor, not Emoor
