HISTORY OF THE ADMIN COY LOGO
To the best of my knowledge, the Admin Company logo (the mailed fist clutching the five arrows with each coloured fletching indicating a separate company colour) was conceived and designed by WO2 William (Jock) Gall, Pipe Major of 2/4 RAR Pipes & Drums in conjunction with Sgt Alan (Foxy) Grey and myself Cpl Trevor (Zeb) Davis in the mid to latter part of the 1980’s.
If I remember correctly, the logo was submitted to Major Wheatley, our then Company Commander who approved its establishment as the official company Logo.
I am happy to stand corrected with regard to the Company Commander at the time as it may have been Major Guy.
Our thanks to Trevor Davis
Subnote on meaning of Mailed Fist – Someone who rules or controls something with a mailed fist is in absolute control and tolerates no dissent. A mailed fist in a velvet glove is used to describe someone who appears soft on the outside, but underneath is very hard.
