    Thanks. Yes, it’s a cap - the band with the name of the ship is known as a tally, by the way. HMS Daedalus wasn’t a ship by 1967 - by then it was the naval air station at Lee on Solent - all RN shore establishments have ship’s names and are ...

    Woof-woof! Do they still wear black and gold? Any team that does deserves success. I suppose they wear all sorts now, though. I don't follow football but as a child I used to support 'the Baggies' because my Dad did. Keep on rocking on the terraces ...

      Squidge Think it needs to be centralised - makes me feel off-balance. In more ways than one.

    Thanks. Yes, it’s a cap - the band with the name of the ship is known as a tally, by the way. HMS Daedalus wasn’t a ship by 1967 - by then it was the naval air station at Lee on Solent - all RN shore establishments have ship’s names and are known as ‘stone frigates’ due to one of those quirks of naval history and tradition. It’s nice that there’s still an HMS Daedalus and it’s just down the road from me
