Can anyone tell me of an appropriate metal badge that would have ben worn by an English Mershant seaman in WWII? There seems to be a lot of variation, from the little I can glean on google. It's for a family tree of capbadges I'm putting together for my boy.
There is a general use Merchant Navy Cap badge --its used where no shipping line officers cap badge is available.
Description is that its similar to the RN Officers cap badge
The Crown is a Naval Crown--Armada and Galleons and English ships sails
the centre piece anchor is bigger on a red background
and the surrounding leaves are different in gold wire .
I wore one when I was a merchant navy ''trainee'' officer cadet .
The ww2 MN silver badge was for general issue to all MN personnel .
