Hi,

Although I'm not familiar with this badge I think that Alex is right and that this badge is for the Indian Navy. Between 1892 - 1934 the Indian Navy was known as the Royal Indian Marine. In 1934 it became the Royal Indian Navy and adopted British badges rather than it's own unique insignia. As your badge has a King's Crown it must therefore date to between 1902 and 1934.

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the info re the NAV buttons. You say that prior to 1889 they used RNAV buttons. Were these the silver ones with the gilt crown and anchor? Nice buttons but the silver tarnished really badly!

1889 is when NZ produced its own NAV dress regulations before this the Navals were "Same as for Her Majesty's Navy".
Pre 1889 gilt button with silver anchor and crown letters RNAV and silver lace.
Post 1889 gilt button letters NAV and gold lace.

Hi Barry.

The original RNAV buttons were silver with a gilt crown and anchor and not the other way around (see image below). Don't worry - an easy mistake to make
And then, they changed to all gilt because the silver tarnished really badly. Really interesting to know that they were also worn in New Zealand. Many thanks!

Pete

Very nice, thanks for sharing.

Your Notes on gunnery for DEMS from 1939 is very attractive... Only have yet a wartime edition from 42 or 43.

Cheers,

JD
