    Hope you know that the Signals cap badge is the most pornographic in the British Army, plus the dirtiest

    Thanks all for the prompt and detailed replies. I can only imagine what the signals cap badge looks like
    Assuming these patches are all WWII vintage, is there much value in them? I am thinking of selling these.
    Regards,

    Tom,

    The Royal Signals cap-badge is of Mercury, the winged messenger of the gods, also known as "Signals Jimmy" for reasons best known to the "Scaley's" (British Army slang for a member of the Royal Signals) and nobody else!!.
    If you google British Army - Royal Signals, you should be able to find loads of info about them.

    Regards etc
