Getting 'Old before our time' is, probably, an apt way of describing a '50s/'60s deck apprentice's life. However, I'd like to think '47Dick's comment about good, old fashioned 'Coleman's' was true and - "Yes, those WERE the days, my friends................

What happened to the M.N. crown on your cap badge, as the badge on your previous photo has the crown??

Well spotted Norm. The simple answer is I'm wearing my own hat and badge, whereas the ED badge pictured was one I 'borrowed' - the picture, that is, not the badge - from Mike Thurman when he organised, recently, some 'summer caps' sporting the ED badge.

Take it you're not the NWP or NR that I know? Fairly sure you're not the former, or there would have been a rude comment attached but - maybe - the latter, far more of a gentleman!

Are you an E of E?

I've only heard that crown referred to as the Admiralty Crown. Apparently it is a representation of the battle of Trafalgar.

Seems to think standard MN Cap Badges ( plus many - but not all Shipping Company Livery Badges) used a Trinity House Crown - Whereas RN and Military Cap Badges used a Royal Crown?

Will 'google' to try and find the answer to the crown query. Watch this space!
