Sealed pattern of the crest of HMS Prince of Wales

We have no motto for this sealed pattern, except for the Prince of Wales motto, which is "Ich Dien" and means " I Serve" (This does however, appear within the badge itself)

Sealed pattern of the crest of HMS Repulse

The latin motto reads:

"Qui Tangit Frangatur" which means "Whoever touches me is broken" (or words to that effect)

The online crest versions were created by Frank Allen of the www.hmshood.com website

Why two different colour versions of our HMS Repulse crest?

Well, pictures we have indicate that there were two versions, the official ships crest which is blue, and appeared on the ship itself, and indicated that HMS Repulse was part of the home fleet, as were HMS King George V and HMS Hood, which also had crests having a blue background.

The white version is from the main gun tampions (a plug to keep the weather out of the barrel), which indeed had a white background.

This is another version of the HMS Repulse crest which appears on all other ships except our HMS Repulse 1916 - 1941

This crest appears on the HMS/S Repulse submarine reunion website
