Nicknamed the "Wavy Navy" from the waved white tapes on the original RNVR seamen's collars, not from the officer's sleeve lace???????

Can not trace a crest of the RNVR, The address of HMS Graham may be of use.
HMS GRAHAM, Whitefield Rd, Govan, Glasgow SW1 (Ibrox 1214)

Clyde Div. RNR (HMS Graham) operated two ships while I was there.
HMS Clyde was our ton class minesweeper and was formerly HMS Repton while in the RN.
Our other ship was HMS Droxford, a coastal defence vessel.
Prior to that, the division used HMS Blackburn, which was berthed at Greenock. Our ship's crest was a fish with a ring in it's mouth. You can find it by googling HMS Graham ship's crest. If you google HMS Clyde, you'll get the RN crest for the new HMS Clyde which is an RN ship.
Former members of Clyde Division RNR have a Facebook page...

Hope this helps.
