Default RNT button

Hi,
Does anyone know if the RNT button in old English characters stands for Royal Navy Trawler or Royal Navy Transport?

Thanks
Barry

Thanks for the link.
How much weight do we put in their description?

I found this old thread.

HTTPs://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...ad.php?t=55161

Maybe it is Transport?

https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...ad.php?t=55099

Can't be many of these buttons around?

Barry

It was the first link that appeared and I didn't check further but the threads you've linked are very interesting.
