25 Years of HUD Production in Airborne Display Division, GEC Avionics. This was obviously a best guess because the Company name links the event to about 1984 which in turn puts the first HUD made by ADD in 1959. This is possible as the HUD for the Buccaneer was developed by that time but the work was done by Rank Cintel which was not absorbed into Elliotts until 1964 and ADD did not exist then either! The RAA has four of these badges
