I HAVE RECENTLY been sent a photograph, a copy of which is enclosed, depicting Merchant Naval men.

Mystery Company

I have tried to find out what company they may have belonged to, but without success. One image suggests the company may relate to Cardiff.

The cap badge appears to have a flag bearing a cross with an oval in the centre with some device in the oval.

By any chance would any readers be able to advise what shipping company these men worked for?

Any help would be very much appreciated.
