It may be worth trying "Fenecks", of Union Street, Plymouth. They used to do a fair selection of crests a few years ago, may still do.

Hi saratrev, Strange you should ask. I have just completed writing up my memories of the Unit, but it was in 1953-54 National Service. I was a wireless operator on the 60 ft pinnaces in those days. Life was centred round torpedo trials in the Scilly Isles. I remember seeing a unit crest in the CO's office. It was crossed grey torpedoes on a coastal command background of blue and white wavy lines. Motto: "We Retrieve". You could try asking the RAF museum at Hendon. But when I asked they had never heard of it! Endymion.
