Help please with another badge


Recommended Posts

I found similar badge pictures on Rich Catalano’s awesome site under Imperial Maritime Association.

This badge however was not pictured so I’m assuming it is a higher class. Can someone please let me know what class this is and what these badges were awarded for?

Thank you all again (especially Nick)!

Tom

Regarding this "Volunteer fleet".

The pin of this badge should bear the inscription

Let`s take a look at the reverse ;)

Thanks for posting this badge, I haven't seen a photograph of it before.  Here's a composite of 3 badges from the same organisation.  Also, 4 separate shots of a 6th Class badge.  If possible, could you post some "square on" pictures of your badge - front, rear, in case and case lid?  That would be good.

Nice badges.

David, please post the separate photos of the badge made by Seishukan workshop and 7th class badge (one of 4 separate shots of a 6th Class badge is in fact 7th class inside the case).

P.S. Pictures were added while I was typing this :)

David, these two badges are pretty rare.

Could you post quality photos of obverse/reverse/case.

Any labels or inscriptions inside (or at the back) the cases?

Here are our original photographs for this badge.

No labels etc on case, other than the stamp inside.

Thank you guys for these photos.

The main manufacturer of "simple" badges was Tokyo workshop Gyokuhō.

It is interesting to note that they used old style kanji for 3 (in seal script) at the lid of the case

but modern style at the pin

    • 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 .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
