Skull & Crossbones badge 'Q' Company
At long last the mystery of the skull & crossbones badge of a particular platoon in 'Q' hopefully has been resolved. The men are ex-submariners and the badge refers to the distain by the First Sea Lord during the early part of the 20th Century when he said that all submariners were pirates. The men took it as a compliment and wore the badge with pride.
