The Badge of the Army Apprentices' School

The  Cross which forms the spokes of the wheel represents the Christian virtues
and the development of  character.

The Torch of Learning, which is superimposed upon the  Cross,
represents that desire to go on learning,  which should be the aim of every School
to implant in the hearts and minds of all its sons.

The Crossed Swords remind us, as soldiers, of the  military qualities of
Courage and Discipline and the importance of a high standard of Physical Fitness.

The Wheel represents the trade and technical training carried out at the School.

The Crown expresses Loyalty to Queen and Country
(and therefore to superiors and comrades alike) and Devotion to Duty.
