The first badge was a white Maltese cross on white/red panel framed with ginger-bread. (...) On a white circle surrounded by a garland on the Union Flag of the Governor. (...) I would be interested to know the source of the date when this badge was replaced (1898). I assumed a date of about 1905 because there is a letter, noting that the Maltese badge needs to be changed, amongst the documents used in the preparation of the 1907 edition of the Admiralty Flag Book (Source: ADM 116/1064A) i.e. the badge was not amended in the 1889 edition. That could have been an over-sight.
