The royal Signals Cap badge – Of all the planets in our solar system, the one that moves most quickly against the background of the stars was naturally named after the swift-footed Hermes and the Romans identified their own god of commerce, Mercury, with Hermes, and so we know the planet as Mercury.

    A nice capture of Jimmy Chris . Why do they call him Jimmy ( is that how it’s spelt )
  • There are a number of theories as to why “JIMMY” was adopted as a term of endearment for the emblem. The most widely accepted is that it came from a very popular Corps boxer, called Jimmy Emblem, who was an Army Champion in 1924 and represented the Corps from 1921 to 1929. It was certainly referred to as “JIMMY” in official correspondence in the early 1930’s.
