"Designs were submitted as watercolours and those which were approved were passed to the College of Arms for a Sealed Pattern to be made for the Admiralty. From this pattern a full size wooden carving was then produced. The master carving was then used to make a mould to cast metal versions for approval. The master carvings and artwork were held at RN Dockyard Chatham until its closure in 1984; they are now held by Davenport Naval Dockyard. The first ship of the Royal Navy to bear an official badge was HMS Warwick in 1919" (Fly Navy website)
