Default Mainly Naval badges for identification.

Hi,
Can anyone assist me in identifying the following insignia. These have had me perplexed for a while now.
Any assistance appreciated.
Any that do not fit in my field of collecting (Naval), will be offered for sale on here first.
Thanks
Andy

Hi Andy. No 3 in the first set is for a Royal Naval Auxiliary Service (RNXS) Communicator (Radio Operator).

No 1 of Second set is a Royal Navy Shipwright.

No 2 is for a Royal Yacht Rating, though I don't know what the N stands for?

No 3 Is a Merchant Navy P&O Lines Medical Assistant or Nurse?

No 6 is a Royal Artillery Aircraft Spotter.

Hope it helps. If you want to sell the RNXS or P&O badge PM me!

Tony

Hi Tony,

Thank you for the very fast response.

With regards to the RN Shipwright, I could not find this particular rank in May, Carman & Tanner. Did it exist within the Royal Navy or does it belong to one of the Commonwealth Navies, i.e. Canada, Australia or New Zealand?

Have p.m.'d you.

All the best,
Andy

N is for State Registered Nurse (sick berth).
