This badge owned by us was designed by a Mr Norse ! (I think) in the drawing office between 1958 / 59 and was on the front leg shield of my Lambretta.
These are the true original colours, the inner yellow ring represents a brass cage with rollers.

This display stand for a engineering exhibition was made in the pattern shop in the early sixty's. Photo taken by John Gittens a well known Kings Lynn photographer now living in the USA.

So, I must know most of these but can't remember names. Frustrating for me. Are we allowed to post names? New to the site

Hello herbie. You ask if you can post names, the answer is yes for that is what we want.
Just give the date the picture was posted and a list of the names. As you go through the
threads you will we are always asking for names of the people in the pictures. When someone
put in a search for a name on the net who is not a member of the forum the forum is one
of the search results that comes up. When that happen we invariable get new members.
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.
