Hi folks

An oppo of mine has what seems to be a ship's crest in cast in brass or bronze, but bearing the letters AUWE and the motto "Seek & Strike". The centre of the piece has a flaming torch with crossed arrows behind it.

I assume this is the crest of the Admiralty Underwater Weapons Establishment. Can anyone send me to a site with more information about the AUWE? Google got me some pictures of the buildings as they are now, and that's about it.

Thanks as ever.
