Can anyone make sense of the funnel badge? I originally thought that it may be 10 MCM but its looks more like 3 MCM - How about Seamanship Training tender (crossed fid and shackle).
The Badge coupled with her lack of Sweep gear has me perplexed!
regards,
Tom

The Reserve "Tons" that came to the Big Red "V" for training "usually" had a 10 (10 M.C.M.) on the funnel if I remember correctly, I would tend to agree with Tomvart from what I can see of the badge.

Badge is an inverted trident. Used by the 50th Mine Sweeping Squadron carrying out AUWE trials at Portland in 1960.
