    Default Cap Badge

    My Grandfather James Gerald Sims served with P & O as a Second Officer. I also have a photo of him as a Master. His cap badge has a red Scottish lion enclosed in a gold coloured square. Anyone know what shipping company this is please.

    Have now posted a photo. Thanks for replying. Think it might be Shireline but can’t find their cap badge. I have a cutting regarding the Fifeshire so I think he could have served on that ship before 1911.
