    Hi guys, Im struggling with this one.
    can anyone put me out of my misery???

    I cant seem to find a similar badge anywhere, well, not with a four bladed propeller.
    the closest i can seem to find is a three bladed propeller, and is described as "Engineering Mechanic Electrical"

    any pointers greatly received as always.

    Not certain as to what the L signifies though?

    It's a trade badge for the Air Fitter branch.

    The badge with the star is for Chief Petty Officer Air Fitter, Petty Officer Air Fitter and Leading Air Fitter.

    The "L" is for "Electrical" (as the "E" was used for "Engine". "A" was for "Airframe" and "O" for "Ordnance").
