Crap Badges Of Our Time - Number Two - Eastbourne Borough


What do you reckon it is then?
A sandcastle?
A lovely Tommy Cooper fez sitting atop a bald head? (How were Eastbourne Borough formed? Just like that!)
Well you're wrong, I've looked it up FootballCrests.com and it's actually a Martello Tower, one of a large number of coastline fortifications along the South Coast, dating from the Napoleonic Wars in the early 19th Century. So now you know.
The black smudge across it near the top is supposed to be a cloud scudding across it believe it or not!
It's rubbish though isn't it? But incredibly easy to draw kiddies, remember that if you are ever asked to draw a football badge in your art class.

As a Villa fan, I ain't saying a word!

Even Randy Lerner's Paintshop Pro effort is better than Eastbournes's!
