What shapes were used for Royal Navy badges?

Before 1919, many different shapes were used for Royal Navy badges. Then, the system became much more organised. Battleships and battlecruisers had circular badges. Cruisers have pentagonal badges and destroyers had shield-shaped badges. Finally, other types of vessels and land establishments supporting the Royal Navy had diamond badges. These badges were found many affixed to different places, including on a plaque attached to each ship and on most weapons.
