Hi I wonder if you can help me. I am the secretary of the Akrotiri Saddle Club at RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus. We were clearing out our club house for re-painting and I came across a few old ships crests and thought I would take them home to clean them up before we rehang them. One of them is this one for HMS Danae. As I started to clean it I have found out it is solid brass. Would any of you have any idea how it got to our saddle club (which started in 1968)? Also what are the original colours as I notice your crest has a black background but this is red, also the castle was painted over white but as I have started to clean it it looks as though it was brass underneath with black picking out the detail.I have asked on our groups facebook page to see if any of the old and the bold can shed light and I hope your members can help also. Many thanks, Jenny Naylor
