Our tribute to the members of the Royal Air Force Squadrons 354, 355, 356, 357, 358, 99, 159 and 178 and especially Mr (Paddy) Ucar, a Flt/Sgt with 358 Squadron, who passed away December 28th 2005.

We can reproduce in gold and silver wire (bullion), all Squadron badges. These range from blazer badges at $24.95 US per badge, to 8½ X 11" (larger sizes available upon request) hand embroidery suitable for framing as presentation items (shipping extra). We can also assist in researching badges as happened in the case of 354 Squadron shown below. This badge was never officially sanctioned because WW11 came to an end before the Heralds could

We would like to acknowledge the kind assistance of the late Mr Patrick (Paddy) Ucar (358 Squadron), and David Campbell (356 Squadron). David was in fact instrumental in directing us to a two volume series by John R W Gwynne-Timothy (see cover on right, although I am not sure if this is still in print). We found these books essential in researching several of the lesser known Squadron crests, thereby allowing us to present the series below. We would also like to thank Matt Poole and Gary Fowkes. Gary is the creator and webmaster for "RAF Liberator Squadrons" a very large undertaking located at http://www.acseac.co.uk/ and Matt has spent many years researching Liberator Squadrons in the SEAC theatre. There is also another good website at http://www.rquirk.com/seac.html

Sheila.

354 Squadron crest. Although a crest was never authorized before the Squadron was disbanded on May 18th 1945, artwork exists showing a signature of approval by the C.O. As far as we can ascertain it was never forwarded to the Herald, so we hope this is in accordance with the C.O's instructions.
