Grace Line Shipping 1930s 1940s Officers Cap Badge
In the mid 1800s, the Irish-born Grace brothers, William Russell and Michael, established a commercial and shipping business in Callao, the port of Lima.
During WW2 the Navy took over the SANTA LUCIA in 1942, as the USS LEEDSTOWN, she was sunk in the North African invasion. The SANTA ELENA was sunk the following year off the Philippville on the Algerian coast. SANTA CLARA as the SUSAN B. ANTHONY went down in the Normandy invasion. Of the ships built before 1939 only the SANTA ROSA and SANTA PAULA survived.
This reproduction is an officers cap badge most likely worn between the 1930's and the 1940's and some versions exist with an enamelled flag within the wreath. You can choose from new or aged condition. Even the reverse has been copied from an original.
