I’ve been trying to identify this unknown airline badge for literally decades. It appears to have a shipping pennant in the middle with a word that seems to be AMARAUS or similar…it’s hard to read! I assume it’s an early British Airline many of which were associated with shipping companies but I cannot identify it. It has the standard British or Commonwealth airline look with an eagle above the badge. Any help or ideas would be very gratefully accepted.

Are we sure it is an airline badge? It seems more likely to me to be a shipping or steamship company cap badge or something naval or military. There is an Amasus Shipping Company in The Netherlands, perhaps they could help you in your search? It also could be something for some WWII auxiliary pilot's cap, there were many lesser-known military units with similar sewn cap badges dating from back then. My point is although it is similar to an early airline badge, I think you will have to widen your search, which you probably have anyway. I tried a few quick searches but was unable to hit anything useful. Just wanted you to know you request is not being ignored. Not much help here, but I hope if you have success, you'll let us know.

Thank you for the help - it's very much appreciated. The pattern is 'classic British Airline' from the 1920s onwards. I've got about 4000 badges of the sort and a great many have this style so I'm pretty sure it's an airline and probably British...but it's not certain by any means. Very few European shipping lines had the eagle above the fact I don't know of any. Quite a few started small airlines though. Also it came in a bundle of other UK airline cap badges and wings. None of that is conclusive of course. I've searched for the word in the flag all over, on Latin websites etc but to no avail so far. I'll keep searching and widening the search and if I ever find out of course I'll let you know.

Inscription might be "AMANAUT" as well. Have definitely never seen that pennant.
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 28 March 2024

Nick is right - the cap badge is of the 'classic British airline' pattern, featuring a distinctive emblem surrounded by a wreath beneath a pair of wings (typically a RAF-style eagle). My speculation is that the word on the pennant was meant to read AMATEUR - in other words, this could be a 'generic' cap badge intended for private pilots.

It appears to be white (maybe yellow) pennant, edged blue, with the word AMARAUS on it, although I am not sure of the last few letters. I make it "Amanaut". That would make it a "sailor for pleasure", but whether that's the name of ship or position of the wearer, I wouldn't know. In the times of the professionally crewed yachts, surely an owner just sailing for the fun of it, not to best his equally rich neighbour, might name his vessel, or himself, "For the fun of it". Do we know when this was, or where? I could look through Lloyd's Register of Yachts, but it would help to know when we're looking for. I see some Amanaut in British newspapers, but I don't know whether Nick already searched those (nor whether they may be misreadings).
