That's interesting Alan, and I think I know who it was, although I cannot recall his name after all that time. I recall that he often wore a 'boating jacket ' to dinner in the mess!

Reference correspondence between me and the Pattern Room.
Thanks Marc, that is interesting. Many fewer around for future collectors then.

Why this has occurred here, for the APTC A/A cap badge is currently unknown but I do wonder if a non-A/A version of the badge was authorised after the earlier A/A version's pattern date. This non A/A badge to be later withdrawn and replaced again by the A/A version via re-sealing with a later date.

Thanks Chris, that pretty much answers my questions, if at all possible. There are w/m and chrome plated APTC QC badges about so not impossible.

Rgds, Thomas.

There seem to be rather a lot of these APTC Standard Pattern cards around.

I also have one.

Best regards to all.
