badge identification

24th October 2008, 10:17
Hello all

As a newcomer to your interesting site I have a query already.
I have a photo of my Uncle Eric in uniform and wonder if any body can identify his cap badge.
He was born in 1916 so I guess the photo was taken in the early 1930s. With his arms behind his back no officer's rank can be seen and the letters on the badge cannot be read.
Regards Richard.

Welcome Richard. Does PSNC (Pacific Steam Navigation Company) ring a bell?

Welcome aboard, Richard.
Certainly looks like PSNC but I'm sure the crew will be able to identify it for certain.
Explore the ship and enjoy the voyage.
