Hi
During WW11 a Warship was named after the township of BROADWAY ex H90 an American destroyer, Loaned to England on lend lease, and after many years of trying I have been unable to get a picture of this ships crest( badge), I have now started to look into the badge of the Township of Broadway to see if I can take the badge details from the township badge and now what I would like is to see a picture of the Township Civic badge,to allow me to see the detail
Thanking you all in advance

Just find the forum ! - You won't find a badge or crest for HMS Broadway, one of the First World War US destroyer escorts handed over to Britain under the Lease-Lend scheme. These did not have custom badges generally, although a few did commission unofficial badges.
Broadway was the ship that forced the 'Enigma' submarine U110 to the surface, bringing with it the coding machine that changed the tide of the war. My father served in her later on as 2nd Lieut & Anti-Submarine warfare officer.
Hope that saves you some tired eyes trawling the net!
