The slip-ons I have have black background. Actually, what I mean to say was that the rank itself is in black, not the background.

I love the hammer. Presumably that's to fix electrical things when they don't work? I know the feeling!

I think the term TRF - Tactical Recognition Flash - is a comparatively modern term. Back then they would have been called Formation Signs.

Interesting. I didn't think cap tallies in WW2 had the name of the ship on them, only 'HMS'. Also, shouldn't it be tied at the back?

I'm not a Navy collector, so I stand to be educated on this...

It's freezing cold here in Ottawa and I could use some of that 35C heat right now, not to mention a few cold beers, although it's a bit early in the day here.

Happy Oz Day, mate!

I still can't see whose signature the first one is, but the second does look like Smythe. The style of the cartoon looks the same as the painting posted by BWEF.

The bottom image won't open. Can you take a close-up of the signature? Otherwise it's too small to see anything.

You could contact the IWM Art Department and see if anyone recognizes it.

Thanks for the info. I'd never heard of the Operation until now. Too bad the book's only in Dutch, though - and no Google Translate!
