There is of course the RAF's eqivelent, Princess Mary's Royal Air Force Nursing Service but I'm afraid I don't have tha badge for them. If anyone can find one for me I would be most grateful.

Me too Frothy, I recognize the Invincible one from my brothers tour on it.
Will ask him if he has the subs badges hidden away somewhere.

The two most important badges to me.

The Badge for the Branch I served in. "Aircraft Handler"
and the sub catagory badge for the Naval Air Command Fire Service.

"Nostris In Manibus Tuti" means "Safe in our Hands"
