    Default No. 35 Squadron Standard

    Does anyone have a decent image of the No. 35 Squadron standard, showing its content, rather than the standard "in use"? Alternatively, does anyone know a source for an image?

    Regards

    Pete

    Afternoon Pete,

    Long time no speak my friend, I hope you are well :) Have you tried the RAF Museum and AHB? They've both been very helpful to me in the past when I've been trying to get details on various squadron standards. Additionally, there is a company in Wales somewhere that has done artwork reproductions of various squadron standards. I'm not sure if they've done 35 Squadron, and I'll need to dig their details out from the darkest recesses of my files, but let me know if you want me to look them up for you :)

    All the best as always Pete,

    Greg

    Thanks Bruce - I'm due a visit there soon, and I've never actually looked in that file, so maybe there's stuff for me and Pete :) I'll add it to the list :)

    L/O

    Thanks for the responses to date.

    Greg; Any help you can provide would be brilliant

    Bruce; do you know if the file contains just the badge or does it contain the standard too?

    Regards

    Pete

    Don't know, it could, but the typical contents of that series include correspondence and artwork.

    The 35 Sqn standard will be probably be laid up in one of two places: The RAF Church of St Clement Danes or the RAF College Hall Rotunda. It may, however, be lodged elsewhere if there were special reasons for doing so.

    I suggest that you contact the RAF Ceremonial Office at RAF Northolt and ask or contact the sqn association for info and then you can photograph the original. The official badge is in the main 1st floor corridor at the RAF Club in London and if you ask very nicely, the RAF Museum will let you have a photograph of the approved sqn badge.

    Further to Colin's last point, there is a display of all (I think) RAF Squadron badges in the public area at RAF Hendon. They are behind glass but I have produced a couple of quite usable photos from them.

    Thanks for the responses, and sorry for not responding, but this thread is still suffering from missing posts (I can only view in hybrid mode)

    The standard is laid up at All Saints Church at Offord Cluny, where there is also a stained glass window commemorating No 35 Squadron. I have kindly been sent a photograph of the standard and the window and these meet my current needs (although I am more than happy to include others in the archives that I am trying to build up).

    As for the badge, I have copies of the artwork from the TNA file (I think you may have got that for me Bruce), but usage of the badge on the website is obviously subject to licence and I have yet to go down that route (I will get round to it one day!). Again, I am more than happy to include others in the archives if they are available.

    My location and commitments (in West Wales) mean that I have limited opportunities to get to London etc so if anyone is passing any establishments with No. 35 Squadron related material, with a camera ......... I would be much obliged

    Regards

    Pete
