RCAF 601 Squadron?? Air direction?
 
1 Attachment(s)
OK, here's another patch I have to ID before flogging it if you're able to help. It's a tall jacket crests and seems to refer to 601 SQN, the RAF mob but I can't decode it. Is that an Air Direction reference at the top? Tel for telecommunications, telephony?? Would the chain links refer to a radio chain? This one's really got me stumped. It appears to be of 1950's vintage, perhaps a bit later.

Thanks for any assistance.

I think it might be 601 Telecom Squadron. They were in Europe in the early-mid 60ís and moved from 2 Wing to Metz. You can find another crest here:

Iím sure you can find out more with this background.

Oops, I guess Walt and I were writing at the same time. I also noticed an exact example of your patch from George Bignell at the same resource, on a different page and dated June, 1958:

In the RAF, AD usually refers to Air Defence. In the communications (Comms) world the chain represents the ability to pass information, unbroken, from one end to the other - as used in this example.

Hi

I somehow missed this thread but good to see.

My Father was 601. :)

I have his Sqn Curling Team jacket somewhere in storage. It has an entirely different patch on it. I'll see if it's handy.

Thanks again.

The one on the left. That's the one for me even though I haven't got a clue what it is.

Cars are not really my thing but the radiator badge looks (to me) as the winged "B" of Bentley.

Hi Guys

It's a 1946 Jaguar Mk IV, I believe.

Dad bought it from a returning-to-Canada fellow Airman for $50.

About a year later, Dad loaned it out to a buddy for a weekend Leave and he promptly wrecked in Paris. Totaled. :(

*I still have about 5000+ photos to go through from my parents house!! Many from my Dad's Career 1952-91.

601 RR
601 TR
601 Tel

Which was it?

regards
Darrell

Hi

Could a Mod please move this whole thread to Canadian RCAF topic? Don't want to lose the info.

regards
Darrell

*Thanks
