Original Royal Navy unofficial gun tompion from HMS Bellona 1910

HMS Bellona was one of two Boadicea class scout cruisers.

Built Pembroke Royal Dockyard.

HMS Bellona served as the flotilla leader for the 2nd Destroyer Flotilla from her completion in 1910 until 1913 when she was transferred to the 1st Battle Squadron.

HMS Bellona spent the bulk of World War I with that squadron. She was present at, but did not fight in, the Battle of Jutland in mid-1916.

She was converted into a minelayer in mid-1917 and made four sorties to lay her mines before the end of the war.

HMS Bellona was reduced to reserve in 1919 and sold to be broken up for scrap in 1921.

Before the standardisation a senior rank or the crew itself decided on the design that would be on the badge.
