Here's a photo of my Royal Naval School badge from Singapore. Many of us had these at the time but, unfortunately, many have been lost over the years. If, like me, you're nostalgic for anything connected with our time in Singapore and Malaya, you probably, if you've lost yours, would like another one. The good news is that I have had replicas made and I'm selling them for £2.99 each.

The badges are the same as the originals and are made from metal and enamel.

If you want one, please send a cheque for £2.99 made payable to Derek Tait (postage and packing within the UK is 80p). Alternatively, you can pay be PayPal by clicking the button below.
