Hello Steve,

RAF Padgate came under RAF Training Command and the badge of that organisation can be seen here:

I dont think Padgate was around long enough to have an official badge.

hi thank you for replying, I have found an old photograph of RAF Padgate showing the main entrance sign which depicts a crest but it is not very clear, I have included the picture for you to look at,
best regards,
Steve

Was there for a week in 1948. It was then No 3 Recruit Centre, where one went to get kitted up and be put through medicals. Then off to a square-bashing location - in my case , West Kirby.
