Branch Badges - Pre-Warfare Branch

#1
Am after any help folks are able to offer as I am looking for images of branch badges pre-warfare branch.
I am sure there used to be a poster with them on, or of course BR3; but trying to find either of these is like trying to plait fog. So, if anyone knows of any sources with reasonable quality representations then the info would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.

Hi Rab - late 80's / early 90's if at all possible
I've still got BR1938 Naval Ratings Handbook I was issued with at Ganges in 1973 (I know, I'm a sad git). I can scan the pages with the branch badges on and post them on here tomorrow if that's any help, although most branch badges were re-done in the 80/90's.

When I originally joined, I was studying electrical engineering at university so they thought I was a natural greenie (RE). I proved them wrong, left the green world after two years and joined the white mafia. 39 years later I'm a sort of consigliere! :D
