I still don't have copies, but I know someone who does (next best thing!!)
Try Abe Books, if there is one about they will find it.

The FAA badges are great but come on lads how about giving some detailed information such as :what shore bases or carriers these squadrons were attached to etc,etc.

Dave, the ships and bases for the squadrons is quite exhaustive, there were numerous airfields in countries around the globe just for the duration of the war, there is a list on the FAA website. Even the ships can be quite long for example 807 squadron.....Hms Argus, Ark Royal, Battler, Eagle (1), Furious and Hunter....possibly more.

If anyone else would like to undertake this task please feel free, sadly I work full time and can't devote that amount of time.


Here's the next batch of badges.

Regards
Alan

Nogrub, thanks for displaying those few photo's to show the official admiralty sanction. All of my photo's are like that, the writing has been removed digitally to give the finished version for displays etc. but the originals are exactly as you have shown.

Here is the next batch of Squadron badges....


Regards
Alan

Gerry.

I got them from a friend, who sent them by E'Mail.
They were sent to guide me to a site on Google,which was selling CDs covering a lot of Naval material, if I remember correctly it was in Plymouth.
If you require further information I can contact him for other details

Harry

Nogrub, your Hms Snipe badge avatar looks a little out of focus....
here's a decent photo of it you can adjust if you wish.

I wondered is there a ships badge for HMS Espiegle out there? Probably not as the name has been used several times for smaller vessels, the last time in WWII for a minesweeper. I believe they didn't have individual badges back then. My particular interest is the WWI Sloop which was also about the last ship the in Royal Navy to have a figure head.

Thanks very much for those photos Terry. I have a couple but yours are much clearer than those I have.

It's a pity that there aren't any colour pictures of this ship because at one time her C/O Wilfrid Nunn (later Vice Admiral), when asked if he wished to change the colour of the figurhead's hair, he opted for green (apparently some ladies at that time were wearing green wigs at dance clubs). There can't have been many ship's figureheads in the Royal Navy with green hair!

A pleasure Odin. It would be great to have a colour picture of her.
Still dont give up - you never know what tomorrow will bring up!
Any new picture at all of the ship that I find I will post in the forum for you.

Stopfords description is "The practical joker in theatre called Tilleunspiegel. Also a prize name of 1799."

Someone had a sense of Humour!

Thanks very much for that, was doubting if one had ever been produced. The name comes originally from a French prize that was taken in the 1790s. The meaning of the French word is mischievous or roguish - which explains the strange badge
