BRITISH NAVAL AND MILITARY BADGES

 by chocks , Sat Oct 20, 2012 7:18 pm

I'll start this with some naval badges because that's all I have. I hope some of you can add some Army or Air Force badges.
I'll keep it close to home to start with and see how it goes.

Ships of the Royal Navy have had badges for over a thousand years but none became official until 1917 when the Admiralty first approved them. Designs and colours were presented for approval and an "Admiralty Pattern" was granted. Any colour changes then had to be authorised, and any design changes have to be re-presented and a new pattern needs to be issued. As shore establishments are considered as ships the rules also applied to them. Squadrons were added in the 1920's and individual units were added in the 1980's. There are still many unofficial badges doing the rounds for units without any badges issued and of those that do have official's many prefer to use the earlier unofficial badge.

I'll start with HMS Birmingham. Note the changes in colour,shape and design over the years. Especially the Hammer and the Crown, one even having a Naval Crown replacing the brick cranelations.
The first badge is the original Admiralty Pattern all the others are adeptation of that original.
