    Default 607 Sq Insignia

    On 2.3.1934 a 607 Sq Avro 504N K1807 overturned at RAF Usworth and a photograph exists-what exactly was the insignia/emblem that was painted on the fuselage.

    Regards,Philip

    I believe this would be the upright lion with wings at the ankles, as seen on other aircraft of this unit. However, this is without seeing the photo afresh.

    Hi Philip,

    I agree with the idea already suggested By Graham - from my experience in the early years there was a practice to draw the symbol used in the unit badge on the plane also.

    I presume this may be the one...

    It's the squadron badge: officially described as 'A winged Lion salient, the hind legs also winged.. When I first looked, it looked more like a tear in the side; I blew it up and it is the squadron badge but it looks very crude. The official Squadron badge was based on a device carried unofficially on the squadron aircraft. By the look of it I think this was an unofficial, crude-looking version. Blown up and rotated......

    Yes, exactly as I was thinking - check the badge Philp - for example here:
