ROYAL NAVAL BLAZER BADGE CIRCA 1950's

DESCRIPTION -- Royal Naval blazer badge in a very good condition and dates from the 1950's.
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Good

HISTORY -- The History of the Royal Navy can be traced back to before the ninth century AD. However, the present Royal Navy was formally created as the national naval force of the Kingdom of England in 1660, following the Restoration of King Charles II to the throne. In 1707 it became the naval force of the Kingdom of Great Britain after the Union between England and Scotland which merged the English Navy with the much smaller Royal Scots Navy, although the two had begun operating together from the time of the Union of the Crowns in 1603. Through all of these times the wearing of badges has been common place.

SET OF 6 LARGE SIZE BLACK COLOURED PLASTIC MERCHANT NAVAL OFFICERS COAT BUTTONS CIRCA 1940's

DESCRIPTION -- This item is a set of 6 black coloured plastic Merchant Naval officers coat buttons. They are dated circa 1940's and are original from the period (click on the picture for a close up view) (LIST 9)
[ONLY 1 SET AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Very Good

HISTORY -- The Merchant Navy has been in existence for a significant period in British history, owing much of its growth to British imperial expansion. As an entity in itself it can be dated back to the 17th century, where an attempt was made to register all seamen as a source of manpower for the Royal Navy during times of conflict. However that registration of merchant seamen failed, and it was not successfully implemented until 1835. The merchant fleet grew over successive years to become the world's foremost merchant fleet, benefitting considerably from trade with British possessions in India and the Far East.

ASSORTED SIZE COLLECTION OF GOLD COLOURED OFFICERS COAT BUTTONS FROM THE CUNARD LINE

DESCRIPTION -- Assorted collection of gold coloured officers coat buttons from the Cunard Line which are dated circa mid 1900's and are in a great condition (click on the picture for a close up view). (LIST 16)
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Good

HISTORY -- Of all the cruise lines in the market of today, perhaps the most venerable would be the Cunard line. A name that is synonymous with transatlantic crossing, the Cunard Cruise Ship Line is known in some capacity to just about everybody who knows anything about ships.  The famous old brand is of course most famous for its White Star Line ships of the early part of the last century, and in particular the tragic and ill-fated liner Titanic, which even those who care nothing for travel of any sort know at least something about. Even if it is only in connection with Leonardo di Caprio and Kate Winslet, surely there is no-one reading this who does not know what happened, ultimately, to this most ambitious of passenger liners.
