This is really interesting to me as for a long time i've been looking for information on the elephant and palm tree. My great uncle Gren used to tell me stories of his time in Africa during the war. Being young, the stories were fun to listen to (how they would put horrible tasting Malaria pills in people's drinks!). As I got older, I became more interested in the role he played. When he died I inherited a box of things. Inside the box was a gold ring, silver necklace and silver cigarette tin, all with the elephant and palm tree logo. My brother and I thought it was some kind of insignia with relevance to Africa. This has made my day finding this information! Does anyone else know anything else or know what other things were made with this logo? Louise
Hi Louise, when looking at the logo I got the feeling that it may very well have very farstretching roots. The way the elephant is portrayed as well as the palmtree makes me think of a mix of Roman/Celtic depictions of African animals. Just an archeologists opinion this one...
