Minesweeper Badge Identification

Recommended Posts

I believe that this zinc minesweeper badge is OK, so does anyone have a clue who the maker might have been? I've had it kicking around for many years and it is well made.



Hi Richard,

How do you come up with these?rolleyes.gif

Seems like some of the flashing around the water plume and the eagle head was left behind, making it difficult to identify it's "fingerprints" so one can't be sure, but judging by the hardware, obverse design and exterior outlines, I'd hazard a guess it was another Juncker mis-strike sort of like that tombak one you had which was discussed at: http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=41022

Perhaps a bit of a quality control problem at Juncker's when distracted by the bombing?

Best regards,

Thanks for the reply Norm. Just trying to someday have a MS fleet to rival yours.:D


I'll never have a real fleet since I've limited myself to the very narrow range of unmarked tombak minesweepers! For me it's more fun to study the badges, their historical context and manufacture, and discuss them, than to actually amass them in quantity. But it's sure nice to see other people's collections! laugh.gif

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
