    Description
    This badge was produced by the Flying Angel Club, an international seafarers centre which provides shore facilities for visiting seamen at various port locations in Australia.
    SignificanceThis badge reflects the breadth of commemorative ware relating to naval themes. Some were produced as fund raisers, others in memory of an event or a ship but all are tangible relics of naval history.
    HistoryCommemorative medals and badges are struck to recognise service not specifically acknowledged by government issues or to reward a particular individual for some noteworthy event or personal achievement. They are also produced for the general public to have some kind of connection with the event or person.
