Above Royal Navy Chief Petty Officers Mess (or Chiefs Mess) Dinner Plate found in England and illustrates a topmark of the Royal Naval Badge originally proofed in the 1600s and still in use today! This Naval Badge consists of a Royal Crown with a base of precious jewels and stones with the top depicting sails with pennants in position 2 and 4, with the rear of a ship in position 3, and what appears to be laurels in positions 1 and 5.

The supposed legend behind the British Naval Badge is that it represents the diminuitive British Royal Navy when it went up against a much superior invading Spanish Armada in 1588. The rear view of the ships represent the much larger Spanish ships and fleet, while the single sails represent the smaller British ships sailing between them.

On British Royal Navy dinnerware one will find either the Naval Badge as shown above or the particular reigning Monarchs Royal Crown when the dinnerware was made.
