Hello Laurent

The first badge is familiar to me but I cannot remember where I have seen it, but I do not think it is a Royal Navy badge.

The second badge, consisting of a crossed shackle and marline spike, was the badge worn by ratings who were Seaman Specialists in the Royal Navy until about 20 years ago. It is now obsolete.

It was suggested that I should reply to this thread by someone, although this will be my last post on here.

Both badges are Sea Cadet Corps badges, the first being that of a Cadet Instructor (now obsolete) and the second being for a Cadet 1st Class Qualification in Seamanship worn by a Petty Officer Cadet.

Hi Nozzer

Thats where I recognised the first badge from - the SCC! And I should have guessed the second badge was SCC Seamanship too because of the arrangement of stars!

Sorry to hear that this will be your last post. I hope that you only mean on a temporary basis. If not, you'll be missed.
