Default Mystery RAN Instuctor Badge

Hi,
new member to the forum.
Medal collector mainly but have a nice selection of Aussie military badges also.
Picked this one up the other day. RAN A.T.E Instructor in white enamel.
When I work out how to post a photo I will do so.
In the meantime any pointers appreciated.

Ed

Made by Angus and Coote, engraved '34' on the reverse.
Any ideas appreciated.

Default RANATE

The former Royal Australian Navy Apprentice Training Establishment. (RANATE) HMAS Nirimba, Quakers Hill, NSW
(that's the Pom's opinion anyway!)
(Presumably the badge depicts a "duck out of water"?)
