RNAS Badge?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I’ve just been given this badge and I’m not sure what it is and was wondering if anyone here knows, I thought it could possibly be RNAS or later Royal Fleet Air Arm.

 

would appreciate any help

 

thanks 

Owen

The Queen's crown would put it in the post 1952 time frame.  The basic elements are combined operations, useful stuff here particularly at the linked example 11 under post WW2 and Modern badges/:

I’m really confused because the HM armed forces veterans badge has the same eagle swords and anchor I’m wondering if it could be an older veterans badge? 

 

Thanks

Owen

Was only introduced in 2004.

 

As Max says, the QC puts it post-52, and the emblem is associated with Combined Operations - Air, Sea, Land.

 

Cheers,

 

GT.

It reminded me of the crest of the Ministry of Defence.

Indeed, the combination of Sea, Land and Air emblems is also seen in the MoD crest.  I would go for a lapel badge worn by an MoD civilian employee thus post 1971 when MoD was formed.

As an MOD Civilian employed after 1971 I have never seen a badge like this. The pin would indicate that it was meant to be worn on a headdress.

It was only a suggestion but I could have been a bit more explicit (as also a long term MOD civilian).  The employees I had in mind were the blue suited doormen/messenger types.
