Default Two more additions to this mini-collection

Just two new additions 'RAF Sailing Club - Ismailia' possibly from the 1950s and the RAF Archery Society presumably 25th anniversary.

There is an RAF Sports Federation website that lists about 50 sports/activities that the charity currently supports so I guess there's many more of these badges out there!

Good Afternoon,

Just a couple more additions to this small collection. A somewhat bruised and battered RAF Seletar (Singapore) Yacht Club badge and one from RAF Odiham (Hampshire) Rifle Club.

Hi Steve

Nice interesting collection, wish I'd taken more notice of things like this when I was in.

Slighty off topic, but here is an RAAF Butterworth Yacht Club Malaysia 'beercan' badge I used to own, hope it is of interest.

Hi Chacal and Insignia,
Many thanks for your comments. The Butterworth Yacht club is interesting as it's not the usual burgee? Nice example.

Not sure why I collected them but if I see one I can afford ....

All best

Stev

As the Deputy Chair of RAF Sport Aircraft, then we have our own “Wings Award” scheme that is backed by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). These badges may not be worn on Service uniforms.
