The most widely accepted theory of where the name Jimmy comes from is a Royal Signals boxer, called Jimmy Emblem, who was the British Army Champion in 1924 and represented the Royal Corps of Signals from 1921 to 1924. It is one of the eight chalk hill figure military badges carved at Fovant, Wiltshire.
Mercury is the Roman God of messages/communication (including divination) as well as the God of financial gain, commerce, eloquence (including poetry), travellers, luck, trickery and thieves (yes really!). Additionally Mercury is also the keeper of boundaries between the upper and lower worlds – something not lost in today’s world of virtual reality!
Mercury was duly adopted, first appearing in the Battalion magazine Military Telegraph Bulletin, on 15 September 1884, and on its headed notepaper.
The Price includes an Engraved plate along the front. Additional Cap Badge is £6.99.
