Default Earl Mountbatten Memorial Branch

Saw this blazer badge and thought it would be a good addition to my collection.

"The Earl Mountbatten Memorial Branch was first established in May 1980 in memory of Lord Louis Mountbatten, following his death in August 1979 in Ireland."

I was very aware of Earl Mountbattens death as my tour of N.I started a couple of month later in November 1979.

I was loitering at HQNI when the news came through.

"P" for "Patron"?

Just realised it couldn't be penny , in 'old money' (pre 1971) one penny would be 1d.

As there is no info about which area it came from , possibly the "P" is for the branch ?

Recently got another one which shows that at least in some branches these were "beer tokens" .
