Probably from the same graduated set, and each with a white metal rim, edged with lambrequins, and with a slightly later white metal armorial shield, engraved with the crest of Admiral Sir Thomas Pasley, Baronet (1734-1808) out of a naval coronet, or, a dexter arm in armour, proper, grasping in the hand a staff, there on a flag, argent, charged with a cross, gules, both with stitched seams and handles, and lined with tin, the larger 12cm base diameter x 18cm high; the smaller 10cm base diameter x 14cm high, (2)

Footnotes

  • Although this crest is missing a canton to its flag, issuing out of an Admiral's coronet, they can only belong to Admiral Sir Thomas Pasley, one of the most successful Royal Navy officers of George III's reign. Originally of the Pasley family of Craig in Dumfies, Scotland, he rose to the rank of Rear-Admiral of the White on 12 April 1794, and of the Red on 4 July in the promotions following the Battle of the Glorious First of June in the same year, where he flew his flag in the 'Bellerophon' and helped to defeat the French fleet. Pasley was also created baronet that year. On 1 June 1797, he became Vice-Admiral of the White, and of the Red on 14 February 1799. In these roles he was commander-in-chief at the Nore in 1798 and at Plymouth from 1799, which was his last service. He rose to Admiral of the Blue from 1 January 1801, and finally of the White in the post-Trafalgar promotions of 9 November 1805: he died on 29 November 1808.
