Default Torpedo Collars?

Hi. Can anyone ID these torpedo badges. Approx 32mm long. I'm only thinking collars as they came to me as a pair and have nice anti spin prongs on the back. If not Royal Navy I will almost certainly be selling. Mike

My thought is that they are missiles rather than torpedoes. I have never seen pictures of torpedoes with those front 'wings' - they wouldn't fit in the tubes like that. Maybe some sore of air-to-air missile or something like that.
Cheers,
Alex

Concur with Alex and Steve. As a retired semi-skilled professional intelligence officer, my inclination would be two separate manufacturer’s lapel pins or tie-tacks representative of an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM), possibly the FGM-148 Javelin or other missile of similar design.

Default Torpedoes/Missiles??

Hi Alex, Steve and Jim. Thanks for your replies. Some further research required then, I think. I certainly agree, probably not British, so will most likely be moving them on 'unknown'. Mike
